Irish Apple Cake
(Serves approximately 6 people)
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 lb butter
½ cup + 1 Tablespoon sugar
½ cup milk
2 large cooking apples
2 or 3 cloves, optional
Cut butter into flour, salt and baking powder with two knives or processor to make dry crumbs. Add ½-cup sugar, beaten egg, and enough milk to make a soft dough. Divide dough in two. Roll one half into a circle to fit a greased oven-proof plate. Peel and core apples. Slice them on to the dough and add I Tablespoon sugar and the cloves. Roll out the remaining pastry and fit on top. Press the sides together; cut a slit through the lid. Bake at 350 degrees about 40 minutes, or until apples are cooked through and the pastry is nicely browned. Good served hot with ice cream!
Editors’ note: I brush the top crust with milk and sprinkle it with sugar to make the crust more golden.
