- Ready In:
- 1hr 25mins
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 10 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup store bought apple butter
- 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and grated
- 1 cup pecans or 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup plump moist raisins
- 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.

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 :)
