Apple Cake with Butter Sauce

I made this for my family last night, and it was gone fast! It turned out so rich and yummy, I will be making this one again soon!

Apple Cake with Butter Sauce

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 tart apples, cored, peeled and grated

Cream butter and sugar together. Beat in egg and vanilla and set aside.
Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; gradually add to creamed mixture.
Fold in apples. Pour into a greased 8"x8" baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Serve with warm butter sauce. Makes 12 servings.

Butter Sauce

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup half-and-half

Melt butter in a saucepan; stir in sugar, brown sugar and half-and-half. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This cake recipe is from Gooseberry Patch Taste of Autumn cookbook.  

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful fall so far. I'm so excited to start putting some recipes together for Thanksgiving. I can't believe it is getting so close. We'll most likely be staying home for the holiday. It's almost impossible for dairy farmers to go anywhere far, at least all together. :)

Happy Fall!
