Irish Potato Apple Cake is basically a covered apple pie, however with a low fat pie crust using potato for moisture instead of butter.
Smartphones have made all of our lives easier. Texting, Emailing, Calendar Management and the list goes on. One of the things I use my smartphone for is taking photos of a few recipes when I don’t want to buy the whole cookbook. Browsing in the bookstore a few weeks ago, I photographed a few recipes from Real Irish Food by David Bowers. This was one of them, with a few minor adaptations by me.
Have you ever thought about using potato in a pastry crust – What an ingenious idea! Since the potato gives it such a soft texture, the large amount of butter usually used in pastry crusts is not here. Therefore, this cake will have half the fat usually found in Apple Pie, which this dessert is related to.
I have made this a few times. The first time I used a standard pie plate and I felt like the crust was too thick.
Now when I made it, I use a larger 10″ slightly deep dish pie plate and I prefer the way this Irish Potato Apple Cake comes out when using this type of pie plate.
