Apple Cider Pound Cake

29 Oct

Hello Everyone,

Here is the tasty Apple Cider Pound Cake recipe that I made for Ray’s office party the other day. πŸ™‚

Apple Cider Pound Cake:

Cake:

3 cups granulated sugar

1-1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened

6 large eggs, at room temperature

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground ginger

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1 cup apple cider

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Icing:

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. baking soda***

In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir together the dry ingredient’s; set aside. Combine the cider and vanilla. Add dry ingredient’s alternately with cider mixture into batter. Mix until well blended. Spoon into a greased and floured 10-inch bundt cake pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour 10 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes, then invert onto a serving dish. Meanwhile, combine all icing ingredient’s in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Drizzle over cake. It will seem like to much icing but the cake will absorb it. Enjoy!

*** I know it seems odd to add baking soda into icing, but it makes the icing foam up a bit, and makes it light and airy.

Until next time..
