Apple Spice Cake

Eat me! Eat me!

As I have said, the apple spice cake is my favorite. Apples were created to be spiced. In our cozy little corner of hell the following recipe is the current favorite. It is my belief that this tasty recipe is delicious with just a dusting of powdered sugar, but you may add frosting if you desire. I am still right, but I will let you have your simple alteration. This cake serves 12-16 people or one hungry cake eating demon.

The Recipe

The Ingredients

The apples
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 medium size tart apples
  • 2 tbsp sugar
The cake

Obviously this is not all the ingredients

  • 12 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

  7. Mix together wet and dry ingredients in two additions. Mix in buttermilk. Fold in apples.
