Apple Stack Cake


Submitted by Amberly Fox


  • Apple Mixture
  • 1 lb. dried apples
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsps. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • Enough water to cook apples
  • Simple Cake
  • 4 cups sifted, plain flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tsps. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup soft shortening
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tsps. vanilla



For apple mixture:
Cook apples until tender. Mash thoroughly and add sugar and spices. Set aside and allow to cool slightly.

For cake:
Sift dry ingredients together and then add remaining ingredients to make a soft dough. Grease and flour 9″ cake pans. Put only 1/2 cup dough in each pan. Spread dough into pan and bake at 450 for about 5 minutes or until browned. While still warm, stack layers, spreading 2/3 to 3/4 cup of apple mix between layers, leaving the top layer bare. Cover tightly and allow mix to soak into layers. The dough makes about 10 layers.
