Grandma Mc Namara's Irish Apple Cake

    Grandma Mc Namara's Irish Apple Cake


    Dear family,

    Grandma McNamara was a wonderful Irish cook!

    Oh, how I miss the woman who taught me so many Catholic devotions!

    She is the one standing on the right, next to Grandpa.

    Today,  Cukierski Family and Farm shares her comforting dessert!

    Grandma Mc Namara's Irish Apple Cake



    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or springform pan.

    2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

    3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

    4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined.

    5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.

    6. In a separate bowl, toss the diced apples with the ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves until evenly coated.

    7. Gently fold the spiced apples into the cake batter until distributed throughout.

    8. Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan and spread it out evenly.

    9. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

    10. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

    11. Once cooled, dust the top of the cake with powdered sugar, if desired, for a decorative touch.

    12. Slice and serve the Irish Apple Cake on its own or with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for an extra treat.

    Enjoy this moist and flavorful Irish Apple Cake as a delightful dessert or afternoon snack, perfect for celebrating St. Patrick's Day or any occasion!

    ---HELP IF YOU CAN----

    Here is a post, from a recipient of what we do,.

    L**** and I were one of the precipitants of This mission. She is right. My parking was 9 per day for 3 months. Then on top of that food cost me approximately 15 per day. That was cheap - I got vouchers for $5.00 per meal. So somedays I did not eat or made meals last for more then one meal. Had to. Parking was $810. Food was $1,300. Then you have normal household bills and I have 3 animals I had to pay to have people come and take care of them. At first I had my dog in the Kennel for 1/2 the time. That was about 500. It is VERY expensive to have a sick child. That was Just ONE hospital stay. We have had numerous ones. Some only a few days, some a week or two. Without their help we would of gone fully under!

    From providing necessary funds to actually having families stay with us...we DO what we say we do!
