Apple Layer Cake with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Buttercream
Apple Layer Cake with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Buttercream
Ingredients
  • 1 Box Yellow Cake Mix + Ingredients Listed on Box
  • 2 Granny Smith Apples Chopped
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple Grated
  • 1 pkg Gay Lea's Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Spreadables 1 Cup
  • 3 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees C.
  2. Prepare the cake mix as directed on the box, using only 2/3 of the water called for.
  3. Mix in both chopped and grated apples then stir to combine.
  4. Pour into two 8" round cake pans and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a tester comes out clean when inserted into cake.
  5. Let cool 5 mins then transfer to a cooling rack.
  6. When the cake is cool, prepare the butter cream.
  7. With a mixer, cream together the Gay Lea's Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Spreadables and the Powdered Sugar then add the milk to thin out as needed. The buttercream should be fluffy and stiff enough that it holds a peak when your whisk is held upside down.
  8. To assemble the cake, spread a thick layer of buttercream over one of the cakes then lay the other cake on top.
  9. Spread remaining buttercream over top and sides of cake.
  10. Serve & Enjoy.
