Buttermilk and apple butter contribute to the moistness of this simple, one-bowl cake.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup apple butter
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Coat an 8-inch square cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; swirl the pan until the butter turns a nutty brown, about 1 minute. Pour into a large bowl. Add the apple butter, brown sugar and oil, and whisk until smooth. Add the raisins, buttermilk, egg and vanilla; mix well. Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt; whisk until just combined.

Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish and bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
