Recipe: Autumn Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

On National Cake Day (November 26), I celebrated by baking my husband his favorite spice cake.  Holidays are coming up and this would be a great dessert to end any holiday feast so I decided to share the recipe with YOU!

Let’s break it down…

Step 1: Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice and ground cloves. Set aside.

Step 2: Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, break up the brown sugar until there are no clumps.

Step 3: Add the vegetable oil and the unsweetened applesauce to the brown sugar and blend until smooth.

Step 4: Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

Step 5: Slowly add half of the flour mixture until combined and then add half of the buttermilk.

Step 6: Add the remaining flour mixture followed by the rest of the buttermilk. Blend until well combined.

Step 7: Pour the batter into two prepared 9-inch round baking pans. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. (Or, until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.)

Step 8: Let the cakes cool completely before frosting.

Step 9: Frost the top of one cake and then layer the second cake on top. Finish icing the entire cake.

Step 10: Sprinkle the chopped pecans on top of the cake to finish. Cut, serve, and enjoy!
