Irish Apple Cake
Enjoy this traditional Irish Apple Cake on St. Patrick's Day (or any day!).
There's nothing quite like a slice of fluffy, sweet Irish Apple Cake. It's especially amazing when topped with a gooey custard glaze!
We love this recipe for Irish Apple Cake for a few reasons. First of all, even though it's made from scratch, this recipe bakes up with almost no effort. The simple ingredients combine for a cake that tastes like you spent hours on it.
Second, the flavor and texture are out of this world. You might consider baking a second cake just to have all to yourself. It's that good!
Finally, we love how elegant this cake looks when it's served with a generous serving of custard sauce. Pair it with a warm mug of tea or a cup of coffee (maybe an Irish coffee?), and you'll be in your own personal heaven.
