This is a very good and moist cake recipe I received from my grandmother years ago. It makes a nice addition to any dinner table.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch pan.
  2. Prepare the topping by mixing together the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chopped pecans.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Beat butter and sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; add eggs one at a time, thoroughly beating each egg into the butter mixture before adding the next. Add apple butter, vanilla, and wheat germ or bran cereal. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with sour cream; mix well after each addition.
  5. Pour half the batter into the prepared pan; sprinkle with half of the topping. Pour remaining batter into pan and top with the rest of the topping.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.

I found this recipe when I was looking to use up a jar of apple butter a friend gave me. It is a great cake! I did some modifications; brown sugar instead of white; walnuts instead of pecans; instant oats instead of bran/wheat germ. Perfect for potluck or church socials - no messy frosting.

Wonderful, moist cake! A real treat. The batter was thicker than I expected and I thought I made a mistake, but the result was a big hit with everyone.
