“Buttermilk and apple butter contribute to the moistness of this simple, one-bowl cake.”

Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 cup apple butter
    • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
    • 3 tablespoons canola oil
    • ½ cup raisins
    • ½ cup buttermilk
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking soda
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
    • ¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly oil an 8-inch square cake pan or coat it with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 2 Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; swirl the pan until the butter turns a nutty brown, about 1 minute. Pour into a large bowl. Add apple butter, brown sugar (breaking up any lumps) and oil and whisk until smooth. Add raisins, buttermilk, egg and vanilla; mix well. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt; whisk until just combined.
  • 3 Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish and bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
