    Cookin-jo's Note:

    This cake is worth making apple butter for in itself but you could also use a thick applesauce. It's low in fat and delicious. If your apple butter contains some of the spices in this cake reduce the amount of spices accordingly.

      Great cake and very easy too. I didn't read the recipe beforehand and missed the part about reducing the spices if your apple butter had spices in it - thought it was going to be way too spicy ~ but it wasn't ~ it was just right. This recipe converted to gluten free very well ~ I did add 2 T of ground flax seed to the batter (standard practice for me). The frosting is just right - any more would have made the cake way too sweet.

      This year we had an overload of apples, so we made crock pot apple butter. Then I had so much of that I started looking for recipes with the apple butter as the ingredient. Made this for the first time today. It is the best cake I've had in ages!! Made it exactly as printed. The hubby and I both love it and I can't wait to make it for others this holiday season!! A real Keeper!

      Excellent cake. Used home-made thick apple sauce, oh and natural yoghurt as I didn't have buttermilk. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe, one I will make again!
