I’ve been wanting to make something with spiced apple and my beloved cookie butter as soon as I noticed the first signs of fall. Now, what’s Florida’s first sign of fall you wonder? Why, it’s the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte chalkboard sign Ya’ll! And yes, said Starbucks chalkboard sign is most likely sweltering in the 85 degree heat.

The cake is a scrumptious spiced apple cake with big bits of green apple and a 1/4 cup of cookie butter blended right into the batter. It’s insanely perfect. Perfectly insane. Then on top is one of my most favorite things ever in the history of all things. Homemade. Cinnamon. Whipped. Cream.
