Ingredients

Cake

  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmug
  • 1/2 teaspoon all spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Coating

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • In a small sauce pan over medium-low heat, bring apple cider to a simmer. Simmer until reduced by half, about 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter or use cooking spray to coat the inside of a bundt pan.
  • Use mixer with paddle attachment to cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until lightened and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Mix in eggs, scraping down sides as needed.
  • In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup of reduced apple cider(see note below), milk, and grapeseed oil. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, and salt.
  • Alternate mixing liquid and flour mixture into butter. Do this in about 3 additions, starting and finishing with dry ingredients.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a knife inserted into a center of the ring comes out wiht just a few crumbs. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing. Let cool for at least an additional 15-20 minutes before coating.
  • When ready to coat cake with topping, melt butter and brush over sides and top of cake. Stir together sugar and cinnamon and evenly sprinkle over buttered cake.

Notes

*You need 1 cup of reduced apple cider for cake. If after reducing cider, you have more than one cup, only use 1 cup of the reduced cider. If you ended up with less than one cup, use regular apple cider combined with reduced cider to make 1 cup.
*If you do not have grapeseed oil, you can substitute another neutral oil such as canola oil or coconut oil.
