Applebutter cake recipe

chasamark Mar 8, 2007 11:32 AM

Our neighbor used to make an applebutter cake which I love and have lost the recipe.

She made a sort of cookie (not very sweet) baked in cake pans for exact size that rose to about a half inch. The cake was made by spreading applebutter between each set of layers (usually about 8 or 10). The cake was made the day before it was to be served and the apple butter permeated the layers making a wonderful cake. Anyone have a recipe for such a cake? Thanks.

    I think you are looking for a very old recipe known as Apple Stack Cake. You make the filling with dried apples. See http://www.foodhistory.com/foodnotes/... hope that helps.

      Strange. I had never heard of this cake until about a week ago. The newest Cook's Country has a recipe for this. It makes an applebutter out of dried apples. Then you have lots of sugar cookie rounds that are cake sized. You combine the two and let is rest to soften up. They make it sound really good.

        It is an old Applachian-Ky-Tn recipe. Old as those hills!
