Apple Butter Spice Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
Recipe by: Butternut Bakery

Apple Butter Spice Cake
2 3/4 cups (330g) all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground clove
1 cup (225g) vegetable oil, or any mild baking oil
1 cup (200g) light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 cup (295g) apple butter
1 cup grated Granny Smith apples (about 2 apples)
1/2 cup (120ml) milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 baking pan. Line with parchment paper and set aside.

Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oil, sugars, vanilla, eggs, and apple butter. Mix in the grated apples.

Whisk in half of the dry ingredients. Just before combined, whisk in the milk. Then whisk in the rest of the dry ingredients. 

Pour the batter into the baking pan and spread even. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean with a few moist crumbs.

Allow the cake to cool completely before frosting.

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz full fat cream cheese, chilled
1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
1 cup (240ml) heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup apple butter
Chopped walnuts

Add the chilled cream cheese and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment.
Whip the cream cheese on high speed until smooth.

With the mixer on medium-high speed, slowly pour in the heavy cream. Continue to whip on high speed for about 3 minutes, or until the frosting is light and fluffy.

Spread the frosting on the cooled cake and top with a few generous spoonfuls of apple butter. Gently swirl into the frosting and top with a sprinkle of walnuts.
