I can honestly say this is one of the most delicious cakes I've ever eaten. The recipe was given to me by an aunt many years ago, and I've never changed one thing about it. Simply divine!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This fresh apple butter cake is melt in your mouth tender with the perfect balance of sugar and spices. The outside has a little bit of a sugary crust. Inside, it's moist and full of apples in every bite. This is a very dense cake that's not overly sweet. Powdered sugar sprinkled on top does add a hint of sweetness. We did add pecans and love the crunch and nutty flavor they added. Angela is right, this is the perfect apple cake recipe.

Note: Every oven is different, but we checked the cake in an hour and it was perfectly cooked. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Fresh Apple Butter Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease a 10" tube pan, 2 loaf pans or a 13x9" cake pan.
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves into a bowl; set aside.
  3. Cream together butter and sugar; add eggs and oil. Mix well.
  4. Add dry ingredients; stir until blended.
  5. Stir in chopped apples. Add nuts (if desired).
  6. Stir until completely blended.
  7. Pour batter into the greased pan.
  8. Bake 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. (Check it after the 1 hour time, mine is always just about done then.)
  9. Cool cake.
  10. When cooled, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if you like. It's just as good without any topping at all.
