Irish Apple Cake

Category: Apples, Fruit, Lunch/Snacks, Cakes, Breads, Appetizers

 Ingredients List

  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3-4 Granny Smith apples
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar for topping


Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Spray 8 or 9" round baking pan with cooking spray (I like Bakers Joy for cakes)
(I don't recommend any larger pan as the cake will be too thin)
Sift flour, baking powder, salt, cloves, nutmeg & cinnamon in large bowl.
Using pastry cutter- cut butter into dry mixture until it resembles fine bread crumbs
Add sugar & mix through
Peel & slice apples into thin wedges & toss in flour mixture - coating apples
In a separate small bowl - beat eggs & milk - add to apple mixture
Toss & stir well to fully moisten flour. Should result in a very sticky dough
Transfer to prepared pan
Flatten top of surface & sprinkle with remaining sugar
Bake 45-55 minutes or until toothpick test is clean
Cool on wire rack
