This Layered Apple Spice Cake with Brown Butter Buttercream Frosting is sponsored by Dixie Crystals. Opinions are my own. It’s basically fall in dessert form. Fresh apples and spices are mixed into the batter, apple butter is slathered in between layers and then it’s topped off with brown butter buttercream. If you’re feeling extra, drizzle a little caramel sauce on top.
How about dem apples y’all? Yes we took them and turned them into a cake. A cake that just screams FALL. This cake has so many layers of flavor and they all come together to create one deliciously complex beautiful bite. That beautiful bite doesn’t come quickly. There is a time commitment with this one. Good news is you can make this cake in stages. I like to start by making the apple butter in advance, then work my way to the buttercream and then the cake itself.

WHAT ARE THE BEST APPLES TO MAKE APPLE CAKE WITH?
If you prefer your cake on the sweeter side, thinking Gala or Fuji. Like it more tart? Granny Smith or Honeycrisp would be good candidates.
WHAT IS SPICE CAKE MADE OF?
Spice cakes are usually flavored with a mixture of spices like cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and nutmeg.
