Apple Spice Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

Pin It

I love apples........I love cake.........I love brown sugar glaze.............let's put them all together for a dreamy dessert!  Here are the ingredients:

3cups flour
1 teaspoon each:  cinnamon, clove, allspice, baking powder, baking soda
1/2 teaspoon each:  salt, nutmeg

1 cup butter
1 cup apple butter
1/2 cup applesauce
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup apple juice
2 apples, cored, peeled and diced

Glaze:

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar

Assemble all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  In your mixer, cream together butter and sugar.  Add apple butter, applesauce, vanilla, and eggs.  Add small amounts (1/2 cup) of the flour mixture to the mixer.  Add a little apple juice.  Continue alternating between adding the flour mixture and apple juice.  When that is all mixed, stir in the diced apples (by hand).


Put the ingredients in a bundt pan that has been buttered and floured/or sprayed with PAM.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until your cake tester comes out clean.  If you do not have a cake tester, stick a toothpick in the cake.  If it comes out clean your cake is done cooking.
Let that sit and cool a few minutes before turning the cake over and putting in on a cake plate.
While that is cooling, assemble the glaze:
In a saucepan, melt the butter.  Add the brown sugar and vanilla.  Stir in the powdered sugar until thick. 
Turn the cake over onto a cake plate.  Drizzle the brown sugar glaze over the top.
