Irish Apple Cake

16 Mar

Hello all,

Here’s another favorite recipe of mine for St. Patrick’s Day:

Irish Apple Cake:

4 tbsp. unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 large egg, beaten

4 Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled, and diced (2 cups)

1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/8 tsp. ground ginger

1 cup all-purpose flour

Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for serving

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease and lightly flour an 8-inch square baking pan. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg, apples, nuts and vanilla and stir well. Sift in the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake until the cake is lightly browned and toothpick comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then unmold and serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.. Enjoy!!!

Until later everyone..
