Apple Butter Spice Cake



    Topping:

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup apple butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole bran cereal or wheat germ
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs, room temperature


How to Make It

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch pan.
  • Prepare the topping by mixing together the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chopped pecans.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Beat butter and sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; add eggs one at a time, thoroughly beating each egg into the butter mixture before adding the next. Add apple butter, vanilla, and wheat germ or bran cereal. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with sour cream; mix well after each addition.
  • Pour half the batter into the prepared pan; sprinkle with half of the topping. Pour remaining batter into pan and top with the rest of the topping.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
