Apple Stack Cake Recipe

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


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


  • 2 cups granulated 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
  • .
  • Apple Filling
  • 16 ounces dried apples
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice


Cream the granulated sugar and butter together. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Measure flour, sift with other baking powder and soda; add to batter, alternating with buttermilk and vanilla. 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. Bake at 400° until browned.

Cook apples just enough water to cover, until soft; mash thoroughly. Stir in sugar and spices. Cool before spreading between layers.

Apple Stack Cake, Member CharleneMont

This sounds like the one my grandmother use to make. I can remember her rolling out the dough and using a dinner plate to cut around the dough so all the sizes would be the same. I have been looking for it for many years. My grandmother passed away without giving us her recipe. She always said she didn't need to have it written down. I loved hers the best since it contains no molasses. I plan on making it as soon as I find some good dried apples. I rated it as I remember hers tasting.
