  • Summary

    This winter dessert is based on traditional stack-cake recipes from Appalachia. Small layers (baked in muffin tins) are sandwiched together with a jamlike apple filling to create individual desserts that are unlike any cake you've come across.

    Ingredients

    • 9 ounces unsulfured dried apples (4 cups)
    • 4 cups unfiltered apple cider
    • 3 cups water
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace
    • 6 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup whole milk
    • 1/2 tablespoon cider vinegar
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • Pinch of ground cloves
    • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup molasses (not robust or blackstrap)
    • 1 large egg
    • Equipment: 2 muffin pans with 12 (1/3- to 1/2-cup) muffin cups each
    • Accompaniment: lightly sweetened whipped cream
