Irish Apple Cake

Happy Wednesday!!! Hope your day is going great!!

As most of you know- I have been making baked breakfasts for the kids for close to a year now. We have been making a conscious effort to reduce the amount of ready-made foods & I’m feeling better & better about our progress. This week I think we went a little overboard with the produce at Costco & I ended up with way more than we could reasonably consume- even with having some 3 meals a day. Soooo- I decided to take some of the apples & make this Irish Apple Cake. It sticks with my “all-Irish” theme this week & was oh so good. The kids enjoyed it for breakfast & the hubs & I had a little with some vanilla ice cream on top after the kids went to bed. I know- we have been going to the gym & it seems counter-productive. It’s okay once in a while. It was too good to say no to.

    That looks absolutely DELICIOUS!….but I don’t understand how it comes out like it does… looks as though you baked a bunch of biscuits, then broke them up and tossed them with apples and the other ingredients and rebaked…..does this make any sense? The only thing I can imagine is that the apples were not thinly sliced, but left in rather large chunks…? Otherwise, how does the cake get its”rocky” texture? Please share your secret!

      Thanks for your question Andrea. The apples are thinly sliced. It comes out like this because the cake batter is more like a bread/cookie dough rather than a thinner liquid like a traditional cake batter. So it doesn’t fill in all those “holes” you see. It it quite thick & almost looks like apples mixed into cookie dough – where it’s misshapen & bumpy. But when it’s baked the result is definitely a cake with apples mixed throughout.

    Like others have said, that looks delicious. And it looks really easy, too! I love the texture and look of this cake and I’m thinking some whipped cream and caramel might be rather nice on top. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe!
