I knew I had to make this cake as soon as I read Dana's description of it here - especially the part about having a bit of batter to go with your apples. I love apple desserts. Maybe because I'm a winter baby.
If you love easy and delicious, make this. Really.
Apple Spice Cake (adapted, barely from Dana Treat, from Flour)
1 3/4 c flour
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground ginger
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1½ cups granulated sugar
¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter, softened
4 cups peeled, cored, and chopped apples (I used 5 Gala apples)
½ cup raisins
