Ingredients

2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg Or instead of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves I put Chinese five spice in place of them. its just as good.
dash ground cloves
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 cup apple butter
walnut or pecan halves, optional


heat oven to 350



Generously grease and flour bottoms of 3 8-inch layer cake pans.


Measure sifted flour, baking soda, salt, and spices into sifter. Measure milk into a 2-cup measure; add vinegar.


In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.


Sift in dry ingredients in about 4 additions, alternating with the soured milk. Beat on low speed just until blended.


Stir in the apple butter and pour into pans.


Bake in preheated 350° oven for 30 minutes, or until center springs back when lightly touched with finger. Cool in pans on racks for 5 minutes.


Loosen sides with a knife; turn out onto racks. Cool layers completely.


Put layers together with cream cheese frosting or a Butter Frosting


then frost sides and top. Garnish with walnuts or pecans
