Happy St. Paddy's Day - Irish Apple Cake

Crunchy, apple-y...what a nice way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! This moist cake doesn't keep that well  -- but who knows if you'll have any leftover, anyways. (Store them in the fridge if you do.)

Directions are from the Ireland's Eye website, and are written in both Continental and American.


175g/ 6oz butter
175g/ 6oz caster sugar  (powdered sugar)
2 eggs, beaten
225g/ 8oz self-raising flour
2 medium cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1tsp lemon rind
2tbsp demerara sugar  (raw brown sugar)
pinch cinnamon
pinch nutmeg

Preheat oven to gas mark 4/ 180°C/ 350°F, and grease and line a 900g/ 2lb loaf tin. Cream butter and sugar. Gradually add eggs and flour. Stir in apples and lemon rind. Pour into the tin and sprinkle with sugar and spices. Bake for 1- 1 1/2 hours.
