Apple spice cake

  • 1 box yellow cake mix (15.25g) plus 6 Tablespoons (45g) flour (we used Duncan Hines Classic Yellow cake mix)
  • 1/2 cup (108g) light brown sugar (packed into cup)
  • 2 teaspoons (5g) cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2g) nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1g) allspice
  • 1/2 cup (l08g) vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons (8g) vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup (302g) buttermilk
  • 2 cups (204g) peeled and grated apple (2 large apples) I used 1 Golden Delicious and 1 Granny Smith apple - grate on the large holes of grater

  • This recipe makes 6 cups of batter
  • Works well for cupcakes
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease and flour two 8 inch round cake pans
  • In the mixing bowl, add the cake mix, brown sugar, spices, oil, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk. With the mixer on low speed, increasing to medium speed, mix for 1 minute. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl. Beat on medium speed for 1 more minute ( longer if using a hand mixer). Fold in the grated apples and pour into the prepared cake pans. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. You may need to cover pans with aluminum foil during the last five minutes of baking to prevent over browning the tops of the cakes.
