Apple Butter Spice Cake

INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup apple butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch square cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; swirl the pan until the butter turns a nutty brown, about 1 minute. Pour into a large bowl. Add apple butter, brown sugar (breaking up any lumps) and oil and whisk until smooth. Add raisins, buttermilk, egg and vanilla; mix well. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt; whisk until just combined.
Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish and bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
