This scrumptious Autumn Spice Cake recipe delivers a delectable, tender cake bursting with cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger flavors. Enriched with dark brown sugar, applesauce, yogurt, and vanilla, the cake remains incredibly moist and delicate, making it the perfect dessert ...
In a small skillet or saucepan, heat 1/4 cup grapeseed oil over medium heat, then stir in cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, cloves, and nutmeg. Cook, stirring frequently, until the oil begins to simmer and continue to cook for 1 more minute. Set aside to cool.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. For a layer cake, grease and flour two 8 or 9-inch cake pans, lining the bottoms with parchment paper. For cupcakes, lightly spray the top of two cupcake pans with non-stick spray, and line the cavities with paper liners.
In a bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and table salt to combine.
In a large bowl, combine cooled cooked spices, the remaining grapeseed oil, dark brown sugar, unsweetened applesauce, eggs, grated ginger, plain Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Beat vigorously with a wire whisk until well combined.
Gradually add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, whisking until the batter is smooth and most of the lumps are gone.
For a layer cake, distribute the batter evenly between the two prepared pans or, for cupcakes, fill each cupcake cavity approximately 3/4 full.
Bake layer cakes for 40-43 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. For cupcakes, bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 17-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Avoid overbaking.
Let layer cakes cool in pans for about 5 minutes, then gently flip them onto wire racks to cool completely before filling and frosting. For cupcakes, let them cool in the pans until they can be easily lifted out, then cool completely before frosting.
