Apple Cider Cake

I got this idea from a friend of mine. She was trying to figure out what kind of cake to bake for a friends birthday. She showed me a couple options and one of them was an apple cider cake. I thought it sounded good but was more for the fall, thinking I wouldn't be able to find apple cider in the dead of winter. While grocery shopping two weeks ago, I decided to check out the case that my grocery store keeps their cider in, surprised to actually see they still had it! So I picked up a bottle, returned home and made this moist cake using a bunt pan, apple cider and apple sauce. This cake has very little fat in it and doesn't raise very much at all.

What You Need:

1 box yellow cake mix (not a pudding one or a butter recipe)
1 c apple cider
3 eggs
1/3 c apple sauce
2 tbs veg oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the glaze:
1 c powdered sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs apple cider

What To Do:

Preheat your oven to 350 degree and grease a bunt pan well.
In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix with the apple cider, eggs, applesauce, oil and cinnamon until moist and well combined. Pour into your prepared pan and bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before turning out on a cooling rack to finish cooling. Once the cake is cooled, mix together the cider, powdered sugar and cinnamon. It will take a minute to get all the powdered sugar combined but don't add anymore liquid, just keep stirring. It will look brown because of the cinnamon but it gives the cake a shinny appearance. Drizzle the glaze over the cake and it's ready to go.
