This recipe is very special to me. I posted this recipe on my blog. I was asked to make a recipe using Challenge Butter for a sponsored post. I love Challenge Butter. This recipe turned out great. I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think. This is a great fall recipe cake for your upcoming holday gatherings. Great with a cup of coffee.

Note: I used Challenge Butter for this recipe. But if it is not available in your area, you can use any brand, just make sure it is real unsalted butter.
