Cinnamon Apple Pie Cake

Cinnamon-Apple Pie Cake is not a pie, but it isn't a cake.

It can be considered a cake because a cake batter is poured in and its consistency is similar to a proper cake but on the other hand it can be considered a pie because there are many apples involved.

The key to success of this delicious dessert is the simplicity

Did you know?
The Bramley apple is the oldest variety widely planted in Ireland. It was first cultivated in the late 1880's and then it has become more and more popular in the following years. This large size apple, which makes peeling easy, is the most successful Irish cooking apple. Once cooked it has a lighter flavour and it becomes golden and fluffy.
