How to Make Apple Cider Bundt Cake with Cider Glaze
- First, preheat the oven and prep your bundt pan with a coat of non-stick spray.
- In a medium-size bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder, and spices) and set aside.
- In another bowl, combine the apple cider and vanilla together; set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Then, begin adding your eggs one-by-one, beating after each addition.
- Next, begin combining the ingredients that you had set aside by alternating adding small amounts of the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients to the large bowl. Continue to mix until blended.
- Pour your batter into the bundt pan and bake for about 70 minutes, or until toothpick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
- Allow the cake to cool in the cake pan for 15-20 minutes. Then, carefully transfer cake to a plate or cake stand and allow to cool fully.
- While the cake cools, prepare the apple cider glaze. Bring apple cider to a boil over medium heat in a medium-size saucepan. Reduce the heat to low and allow it to simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the amount of cider has been reduced by 50%.
- Stir in the butter, cinnamon, salt, and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Continue stirring until well combined. If needed, stir in additional powdered sugar to thicken the glaze.
- Once the cake has fully cooled, pour the glaze over the top of the cake. Top with a drizzle of caramel sauce.
