I love apples........I love cake.........I love brown sugar glaze.............let's put them all together for a dreamy dessert! Here are the ingredients:
1 teaspoon each: cinnamon, clove, allspice, baking powder, baking soda
1/2 teaspoon each: salt, nutmeg
1 cup butter
1 cup apple butter
1/2 cup applesauce
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup apple juice
2 apples, cored, peeled and diced
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
Assemble all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In your mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add apple butter, applesauce, vanilla, and eggs. Add small amounts (1/2 cup) of the flour mixture to the mixer. Add a little apple juice. Continue alternating between adding the flour mixture and apple juice. When that is all mixed, stir in the diced apples (by hand).
Put the ingredients in a bundt pan that has been buttered and floured/or sprayed with PAM.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until your cake tester comes out clean. If you do not have a cake tester, stick a toothpick in the cake. If it comes out clean your cake is done cooking.
Let that sit and cool a few minutes before turning the cake over and putting in on a cake plate.
While that is cooling, assemble the glaze:
In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and vanilla. Stir in the powdered sugar until thick.
Turn the cake over onto a cake plate. Drizzle the brown sugar glaze over the top.
