Irish Apple Cake


Streusel Topping:

  1. 105 g all-purpose flour
  2. 21 g oats
  3. 115 g granulated sugar
  4. Large pinch of salt
  5. 85 g unsalted butter


  1. 115 g unsalted butter
  2. 115 g granulated sugar
  3. 10 ml vanilla extract
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 45 ml milk
  6. 177 g all-purpose flour
  7. 5 g baking powder
  8. 3 g cinnamon
  9. Large pinch of salt
  10. 3 Red Prince Apples, peeled & thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 375° F.

For the Streusel, combine all the dry ingredients, then rub in the butter until you reach a sand-like consistency. (A pastry knife or dough mix tool on a stand mixer will speed this up.)

For the cake, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Mix in the vanilla, then beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the milk.

Fold in the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt).

Lightly grease a springform pan with butter. Spread the cake batter evenly in the bottom.

Neatly arrange a layer of sliced apples on top of the batter.

Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the apples. Bake for 45 minutes.

Allow to cool and garnish with powdered sugar.
