  • 4 cups chopped apples (I use red delicious but you could use about any kind for this recipe. Peel, core and chop pieces a little smaller than a dime.)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts chopped


  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 8 tablespoons butter or 1 stick or 1/2 cup softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a bowl. 
  • Cream butter, sugar and eggs with a mixer. Combine with flour, add buttermilk and vanilla and mix. Fold in chopped apples and nuts with a spoon. Spray or line a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan (this is a regular baking sheet with a lip all the way round it)
  • I usually just line mine with aluminum foil.Spread cake mixture in pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool and frost


  • Mix all ingredients together with mixer. Spread over cooled cake.
