Apple Cake with Apple Butter Glaze

by Chelcie on October 23, 2011

Yesterday’s Apple Picking adventures left me with 16 pounds of apples..so naturally I made an Apple Cake

I used a recipe based out of The Flour Cookbook, only making a few changes

I forgot to take pictures of the process(woopsies), but here is a picture of the batter all mixed up

don’t you just wanna eat the entire bowl? well badder licking ensued

The apple cake my mom always makes is with a cream cheese frosting, but due to the fact that we are currently short on grocery supplies (no goat cheese! it’s seriously a huge problem) I used some of the apple butter I bought yesterday to make a glaze

Not the prettiest glaze, but I promise you it tastes amazing. I just mixed 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/2 cup apple butter and a little almond milk to thin it all out.

SO GOOD. I feel like I say that about a lot of things..but actually this is a must make recipe!

so amazing. Dense, gooey, melt in your mouth delicious. I made this cake yesterday and it’s basically gone. ‘nough said.
