Put a Spin on Fall Recipes with Musselman's Apple Butter {Review & Giveaway} #applebutterspin

Musselman's logo
As summer has officially come to a close and the cooler temps of fall quickly approach, it's that time of year for one of the season's traditions – making delicious comfort food!

Along with enjoying the drop in humidity and the beautiful colors of the leaves, it's also time to give our culinary skills an update by incorporating the sweet fruity flavor of fall apples into recipes whenever possible.

Which is why now is the perfect time to create all sorts of tasty menu additions with the rich flavor of Musselman's Apple Butter.

Musselman's Apple Butter

A gluten-free, dairy-free, highly concentrated form of applesauce, apple butter can be used individually as a yummy spread or in any number of dishes to give a rich apple zing. This unique, versatile ingredient is just the thing to reach for to celebrate fall!

While Musselman's has always offered a wide variety of great recipes to get you started (or to inspire you to create your own), they have now also made it possible to find even more delicious options with their new Apple Butter e-recipe book. Download it for free and get cooking!

recipe e-book

With such a large number of tasty-looking recipes in the e-recipe book, I didn't know where to begin... and then Musselman's sent over a few ingredients to inspire me even further!

Musselman's Apple Butter review

As I'm fairly certain that I have never met a fruity bread or cake that I haven't liked, I knew that I couldn't pass up trying the Spiced Apple Cake with Orange Glaze first.

After all, these cute little loaves looked extremely easy to make, very delicious to eat, and something that the whole family would enjoy munching on or giving as gifts. Let's get baking!

Spiced Apple Cake with Orange Glaze

Ingredients

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ground cloves
¾ cup sugar
½ cup butter
2 eggs
½ cup buttermilk
1 cup Musselman's Apple Butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp orange juice
1 tsp orange peel

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Sift flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves.

Cream sugar and softened butter or margarine in large bowl. Add eggs, beating thoroughly. Beat in dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk. Stir in apple butter.

Pour into a greased 9" x 5" x 3" loaf pan (to make small individual cakes for gift giving, use four 6" x 2½" x 2" pans and be sure to adjust baking times for the smaller pans).

baking with apple butter

Bake in 350°F oven 55 to 65 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Make orange glaze by combining powdered sugar, orange juice, and orange peel. Spoon glaze over warm cake.

Apple Butter cake

Mmmmmm! I love the way that the rich apple flavor of Musselman's Apple Butter is throughout the entire cake and that the sweet orange glaze on the top complements it just right.

Each bite is melt-in-your-mouth yummy so, even if you have plans to gift them, be sure to leave at least one for yourself as well because you're not going to want to miss reaching for a slice (or two) (or more).
