Irish Apple Cake

Today is St. Patrick's Day.
I made this Irish Apple Cake for dessert.


1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
4 tbsp milk or cream

3 Granny Smith apples peeled
and thinly sliced.
Confectioner's/icing sugar for dusting.

Streusel Topping Ingredients
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
6 tbsp unsalted cold butter, cut in small pieces.

To make the streusel topping whisk the flour,
 oats, cinnamon, brown sugar and walnuts together.
Blend in the butter.

In another bowl, whisk together the flour, 
baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

With a hand mixer or stand mixer,
cream together the butter and sugar,
Beat in the eggs one at a time
Add the milk.

Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture 
and place in a greased pan lined 
with parchment paper in the bottom. 
A spring-form pan works well also.
The mixture is thick.

Prepare your apples.
I have this fantastic machine that peels, 
cores and slices apple in less than a minute.

Place the sliced apples in the pan,
 on top of the batter

Add the streusel topping on top of the apples

Bake about 1 hr.
Let cool.
Dust with confectionary/icing sugar.

Since, it's St. Patrick's Day,
I topped it with 
Mint Chocolate IceCream

Happy St. Patrick's Day.
May the luck of the Irish be with you!!
