Desserts, Recipes

It’s St. Patrick’s day and most places will give Irish recipes for corned beef (bacon if you want to be traditional) and cabbage, Irish soda bread, or traditional Irish breakfast. Instead of the usual main dish recipe lets do a traditional dessert! Apple cake is very Irish and this recipe is not only delicious but good for you!

Difficulty level 3
Cost of ingredients 8 USD

  • 4 tablespoons (56g) butter, unsalted
  • ½ cup (100g) sugar
  • 1 cup (244g) apple sauce, unsweetened
  • 4 baking apples, cored, peeled and sliced, makes about 2 cups (440g)

Remove from the oven and allow to cool about 5 minutes.

    facebook needs to fix this live feed ticker, it has taken away our privacy, we should be able to comment on a pic or a status or like a status without it being announced to everyone, people can now follow us about more than they could before, we should have the choice of what we want to show in the live feed ticker. FIX NOW PLEASE!

    Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

    There is an elite band of internet marketers. They have top secret conferences that are not even released until 20 minutes beforehand. They don’t really share their secrets with anyone outside their group. Pursue this link and you can get a glimpse at their secret invitation video…

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new surveys are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I purchase four emails sticking with the same comment. Possibly there is by any means you might get rid of me from that service? Thanks!

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
