Some of my best recipes are made while I’m in Montana…… and this one takes the cake. HAHAHA!
Apple Cider Bundt Cake
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine these dry ingredients:
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ground cloves
3/4 tsp. salt
In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients together by whisking:
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup applesauce
2 tsp. vanilla paste
1 cup fresh apple cider
3 large eggs
2/4 cup olive oil
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry just until totally combined together.
Butter and flour your bundt cake pan really well.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and cool 10 minutes. Then invert onto a cooling rack to cool 10 more minutes before glazing.
Apple Cider Glaze
Prepare the glaze while your cake is baking.
1 1/2 cups fresh apple cider
1 tsp. cinnamon
In a medium saucepan, simmer the cider and cinnamon until reduced by 2/3 and thickened. Add 3 tbsp butter and whisk plus 1 tsp. maple flavoring. Use a pastry bush to place the glaze over the warm cake. Save half for serving.
Serve the sliced cooled cake with a dollop of fresh whip cream and a drizzle of remaining glaze.
Happy Baking! xo
