One of the main reasons we love this recipe is how moist it is, the apple butter really keeps this cake from drying out. It’s also made in an 8X8 which is so nice. This cake is also very versatile and you can add nuts or leave them out. We love the raisins but if you don’t skip them. We also don’t frost this cake but you can if you like. It’s a very good basic cake and the spices make it perfect for Fall or the holiday season.
