This is one recipe I love. You usually have the ingredient's already. If you do not have buttermilk on hand, I read and have done this and the (cake tastes just as good). When measuring milk, leave out 1 Tbsp. Then add 1 Tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice to the milk. It works. I was sure surprised the first time I tried it!


Cake Topping:


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Use a 13x9 inch pan, greased.

In large bowl blend 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup shortening. Dissolve soda in 1 cup buttermilk, Stir into shortening mixture.

Add flour to ingredients a little at a time and adding the spices with the flour. This way they really get mixed well.

Now fold apples into the cake batter, and pour into pan.

Topping: Add ingredients for topping in a small bowl. Mix and set aside.

Sprinkle topping over batter in pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes, and enjoy!

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 1/3 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar


In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition (batter will be thick). Pour into a greased and floured 10 inch fluted tube pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. For icing, in a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar and cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; cool for 5-10 minutes. Whisk in confectioners' sugar. Drizzle over cake.
