This cinnamon apple cake is one of my favorite recipes: http://www.wholesoyco.com/recipes/ite...
I make a version of this cake with pumpkin butter instead of apple butter and mini chocolate chips instead of cut apples. I don't know about elsewhere, but where I live, people seem to really like pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and cake.
I don't see the pumpkin butter I usually buy at the store but there is another brand available: http://www.bobmccutcheon.com/newmccut...
I'm not sure what the ingredients are in the pumpkin butter I usually buy but another brand had these ingredients in their pumpkin butter: pumpkin, apple cider, brown sugar,lemon, cinnamon.
I'm guessing it tastes the same and the price was fine but I saw pumpkin pie mix and pumpkin puree on sale so I wondered if I could just use pureed pumpkin or pumpkin pie mix. Save the option of using freshly pureed pumpkin, do you think any of those canned/boxed pumpkin products would work?
Often I see this brand on sale: http://www.farmersmarketfoods.com/pro...
My guess is that the pumpkin pie puree would be closer to the pumpkin butter but maybe not as thick? Not sure what canned pumpkin pie puree looks like but I assume it's not as thick.
The cake is quite moist and really flavorful with the pumpkin butter! I don't mind using the other brand of pumpkin butter but just wonder what my options are before trying.
