  • Summary

    In Kentucky and its environs, this dessert once served as a wedding cake; neighbors and friends might have each brought a layer, and the hosts would add the filling. We plumped up dried apples in cider and tucked them between layers of clove-and ginger-spiced molasses cake.

    Ingredients

    • 5 cups dried apples (about 3/4 pound)
    • 5 cups apple cider
    • 1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pans
    • 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour, plus more for pans
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 cup unsulfured molasses
    • 1 cup buttermilk
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
