Apple Stack Cake

1 lb. dried apples

1 C. sugar

1 C. brown sugar

2 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. allspice

1/4 t. ground cloves

Enough water to cover apples.

Cook apples until they are tender. Mash and add sugar and spices. Cook for 5 more minutes, stirring to make sure sure apples do not scorch.


4 C. flour

1 C. sugar

4 t. baking powder

1 t. salt

1/2 t. soda

2 eggs

1/2 C. butter

1 C. buttermilk

2 t. vanilla

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until it looks like small peas.

Add the eggs to the buttermilk and stir to combine. Pour into flour mixture and add vanilla. Stir to combine. Mix into a soft dough, about the consistency of cookie dough. If needed add a little more buttermilk.

Grease and flour 9 inch cake pans. Measure 1/2 cup dough into each pan. Dust your hands with flour and pat the dough out to the edges of the pan.

Bake at 450°F. for about 5 minutes or until slightly browned.

While the layers of the cake are still warm, stack the layers adding 2/3 cup of apple filling between each layer.

Cover tightly and allow to stand overnight.
