Ready In:
1hr 25mins




  • Center a rack in the over and preheat to 350°F.
  • Butter and flour a 9-10 inch bundt pan.
  • Whisk together the dry ingredients, flour through salt.
  • Working with a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat the butter and sugar on medium speed, scraping the bowl as needed, for 3 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth, thick, and pale.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating for about 1 minutes after each addition; you'll have a light fluffy batter.
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat in the apple butter.
  • Add the grated apples and mix to completely blend.
  • Add the dry ingredients, mixing only until they disappear into the batter.
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold in the nuts and raisins.
  • Turn the batter into the bundt pan and smooth the top of the batter with the spatula.
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a thin knife inserted deep into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes before unmolding.
  • Cool completely before serving.
  • The cake taste much better after a day or two.

    This is a lovely moist cake - I loved the fact that you grate the apple. I used pear sauce for the apple butter and omitted the raisins but otherwise I followed the recipe as written. Thanks, it tasted great!

    This is a fabulous cake! The house smells wonderful, cake is delicious...and everyone thinks I'm great LOL. Thank you Rae for a great recipe!

    The cake smelled wonderful just out of the oven. Sadly enough the spices did not come through in the taste. The cake was very moist, a little too much. And no-it was not under-baked. If I make it again I would certainly double, even treble the spices. I liked the fact of grating the apples, yes it's a good recipe to experiment with. Thanks for posting.

    What a treat! The flavor and texture of this cake of this cake are wonderful! It certainly does taste better a day or two later - if you can keep it around that long! The instructions were food and the baking time was accurate for my oven. I used a locally made apple butter, sultanas and pecans - yum! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe Rae England :)
