Apple Cider Bundt Cake

Another perfect Montana inspired recipe.

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.

The glaze is the final layer of flavor.

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
