Spiced dried apples make the filling for this many-layered cake.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • For the Apple Filling:
  • 16 ounces dried apples
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice

Steps to Make It

The Cake

  1. Cream the granulated sugar and butter together.

  2. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

  3. Measure flour, sift with other baking powder and soda; add to batter, alternating with buttermilk and vanilla.

  4. Divide dough into six or eight parts. Use a well-floured board to roll into rounds, if baking on cookie sheets, or pat into well-greased 9-inch pans.

  5. Bake at 400° until browned.

The Filling

  1. Cook apples with just enough water to cover, until soft; mash thoroughly. Stir in sugar and spices.

  2. Cool before spreading between layers.
