Recipe by If you are looking for an irish dessert, this is it! A slightly dense cake, it is fresh tasting and really good! The family loved it! Smells wonderful while baking!


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp of each ground ginger, nutmeg & allspice
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 5-6 Granny Smith apples
  • Custard Sauce:
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


For cake:Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place Medium or Large Round Mold on Perforated Baking Sheet; set aside. In Stainless Mixing Bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, ginger, nutmeg and allspice for 20 seconds; add butter pieces and rub into mixture using fingertips until it resembles fine crumbs. Stir in 1 cup sugar.Peel apples, slice in half, core and stem, then laying apples on flat side, slice downward into pieces slightly less than 1/4" tick, then dice those apples into smaller chunks). Add apples to flour mixture and toss well to evenly coat, while working to separate any apples that may be stuck together.In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together milk, eggs and vanilla until well combined. Pour milk mixture over apple/flour mixture and using clean hands, toss just until combined (batter will be slightly lumpy but that's fine, just don't over mix).Pour batter into Round Mold and spread into an even layer. In a small bowl stir together remaining 2 Tbsp sugar plus 1/2 tsp cinnamon, sprinkle evenly over cake. Bake in preheated oven 45-50 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool about 5 minutes, then remove from Round Mold by pulling down sides and allow cake to cool on Floral Cooling Rack to desired temperature. Serve warm drizzled with warm custard sauce (or cool with cold custard sauce).For Custard Sauce:Heat milk with a pinch of salt over medium heat, and bring just to light boil (don't let it hit rapid boil). Meanwhile, add egg yolks and sugar to Stainless mixing bowl and whisk vigorously until pale and fluffy, about 2-3 mins. Reduce burner to medium-low heat, then while whisking egg yolk mixture, pour in 1/2 cup hot milk mixture. Then while whisking milk in saucepan, slowly pour egg yolk mixture into saucepan. Cook mixture, whisking constantly, until thickened and mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon, about 3-4 mins (don't overheat or cook too long to prevent curdling). Immediately pour into glass container, stir in vanilla and whisk about 20 seconds to cool slightly, then cover with plastic wrap pressing against surface to prevent skin from forming. Serve warm or cold over cake. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.Adapted from cookingclass.com
