Recipe Swap: Apple Butter Pound Cake


The theme for this week's recipe swap was Apple or Pumpkin, and I received this recipe for Apple Butter Pound Cake from Rachel at Fall In Love. It was a little challenging to find the Apple Butter, but once I did this cake was easy to make, turned out very moist and delicious! I love apples, and this was a wonderful new way to use them in a dessert.

Apple Butter Pound Cake

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2/3 c sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup apple butter
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 apple peeled and chopped

Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 330 degrees F.  Grease one 9x 5 loaf pan.  
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour and salt and set aside.  
  3. In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar for a full 8 minutes. It should be very light in color and fluffy in texture.  
  4. Beat in vanilla extract and apple butter until thoroughly combined.  
  5. Crack eggs into a small bowl and beat slightly. Add in increments to the butter mixture, beating to combine after each addition.  
  6. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in increments, beating only until just combined after each addition.
  7. Fold in apple pieces. Spoon batter into prepared pan, tapping to release bubbles and smoothing the top.
  8. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
