Apple Cider Donut Cake

It’s apple season and I’m so excited! I love all things apples – cider, baking with them and dipping them in caramel or peanut butter. Are you an apple lover too?

We get cider from our local orchard and it’s so good! The orchard is less than 10 miles from our house and it’s packed full of apple goodness. It’s even better when you add it to cake … cake that tastes like a donut! YUM! We’re all enjoying it and I love how easy this cake was to make.

2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups fine almond flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup apple cider
3/4 cup applesauce
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter and flour a bundt pan and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cider, applesauce, oil, eggs and vanilla. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into your prepared bundt pan.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a cake tester inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack. Once slightly cooked, insert the pan on a plate and flip over to remove the cake from the pan. Mix the 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon together in a small bowl. Melt the butter and then brush onto the cake and generously sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Slice and enjoy!
