Irish Apple Cake Recipe

Apples have been grown in Ireland for hundreds of years. Legend even has it that St. Patrick and his fellow monks planted apples trees in Ireland!

Prep: 20 minutes | Bake: 45-50 minutes | Yield: 1 8-inch cake

Irish Apple Cake


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 apples, cored, peeled, and diced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease 8 inch square pan and set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until well combined and then add the egg. Beat until smooth and very pale. Stir in the apples and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add to butter/sugar mixture and mix well. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Cool for at least 5 minutes. The cake is delicious both warm or cooled to room temperature.

Serve with cake plain or top with lightly sweetened whipped cream or mix together a bit of Bailey’s Irish Cream with powdered sugar for a yummy glaze.
