Apple Stack Cake from Creasman Farms

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup soft butter (you can use unsalted, if you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees
  2. Flour 4 to 5 nine inch pie pans
  3. Sift all dry ingredients together in a bowl
  4. Mix butter and brown sugar together until creamy, add eggs and molasses and blend until combined
  5. Alternate adding flour and buttermilk to the wet ingredients until combined
  6. Divide the batter between pans and spread out with spoon
  7. Bake 15 to 20 min. Let them cool about 10 mins. And then take out of pans to finish cooling.
  8. Filling: "I use homemade applesauce but my grandmother would use dried apples reconstituted and some people use applebutter."
  9. Once the cakes are cooled, place a cake on a plate put layer of filling, place the next cake, then filling until you have built a stack.
  10. The cake needs to sit for a while so all the filling can soak in.
