Apple Butter Stack Cake
1 box of yellow cake mix. I prefer the pudding in the mix kind. (you
will also need the ingredients called for on the box. eggs, oil etc.)
One to Four 8 inch round non-stick cake pans. (The more pans you have the
faster you can make this cake)
1 jar of apple butter
Can of Non-Stick spray
Put apple butter in a bowl. Add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves till you love the taste. Doesn't take much of each. Apple Butter is good by itself. But the added spices give it an extra something. Set the bowl aside till you need it. Mix your cake mix in a bowl per box directions and set the oven temp to the box directions. Lightly spray the cake pans with non-stick spray. No flour please. Pour exactly 3/4 of a cup of cake mix into each pan. Scrape the measuring cup to ensure an equal amount in each pan. Shake and bang the pan on your hand to spread the mix out evenly in the pan. Pop the pans in the oven and in about 10 minutes they will be springy in the middle and lightly brown on the edge, keep a close eye on them while baking. You will end up with about 6 cake layers about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick each. This is the secret to the cake, thin moist layers. When a layer is done baking remove it from the oven and let it sit a few minutes in the pan then while it is still warm place a paper towel on your palm and turn the pan over and slowly shake it and the thin layer will fall on your hand then place it on something to cool. Do this to all the layers. If you shake it right your layers won't break.
Place a cooled cake layer in the middle of a plate. Grab your bowl of apple butter and spread a thin layer onto the cake. Place another cake layer on top of the first and put on more apple butter. Repeat this till all layers are stacked. Now take the remainder of the apple butter and spread it on the top and side of the cake.
