  • Apple Stack Cake
    My father grew up in south eastern Kentucky. His mom made an Apple Stack cake using a gingerbread style pancake and dried apples. We've been looking for a recipe for years, and have come close. I'm hoping someone here will have an idea.

    I've never tried this, but I hope it's like your father remembers.


    2 2/3 c. flour
    1 tsp. soda
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. ginger
    1 tsp. salt
    1 c. dark brown sugar
    1/3 c. dark molasses
    1/3 c. butter
    2 eggs, well beaten

    Cream butter until it is light and fluffy, and add brown sugar and molasses and continue creaming until mixture is fluffy. Add eggs. Combine flour, soda, baking powder, ginger and salt and sift into creamed mixture. This should be a soft dough and a few tablespoons of buttermilk may be added if dough is too stiff. Divide dough into 6 equal parts. Draw a 9 inch circle on a sheet of aluminum foil. Lightly flour foil and roll 1 part of dough to fit circle. Bake on foil in oven at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Repeat for remaining dough. Cool layers and stack layers with Dried Apple Filling. Dust top layer with confectioners' sugar. Makes 8-10 servings.

    DRIED APPLE FILLING (for Stack Cake) :
    1 lb. dried apples
    1 c. dark brown sugar
    1 c. granulated sugar
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. cloves
    1/2 tsp. allspice

    Add 2 cups of water to apples. Simmer in covered saucepan until apples are soft. Mash apples. While apples are still hot, blend in remaining ingredients. Spread filling between layers over the sides of cake.
