How To Make irish apple crumble cake

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 180°C, grease and line a 20cm cake tin with a removable base.
  • 2
    With an electric hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until they are incorporated.
  • 3
    Fold through the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon until you have a thick cake batter.
  • 4
    Stir through the apple and pour the batter into the cake tin. The batter will be thick, so use a spatula to spread across the base of the tin.
  • 5
    Using a hand blender with a food processor attachment, blitz the ingredients for the crumble topping until you get left with rough crumbs.
  • 6
    You can also do this by hand in a bowl using your fingertips to combine the ingredients together.
  • 7
    Sprinkle the crumble topping on top of the batter.
  • 8
    Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • 9
    Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
