Apple Cider Doughnut Cake

Fall is the prefect time to make this Apple Cider Doughnut Cake. I was seeing this recipe all over Facebook so I had to try it after my mother-in-law brought us a gallon of cider. It was an easy cake to make and I drizzled mine with icing instead of the butter and cinnamon sugar topping it called for.

Adapted from Princesspinkygirl.com

In a large bowl add the dry cake mix, apple

cider, applesauce, eggs, cinnamon,

brown sugar and vanilla.

Beat with a mixer on medium

speed until smooth and creamy.

Generously grease a 12 cup bundt pan.

Flour the pan and tap out any excess flour.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for

40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted

into the center comes out clean. Cool in

the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Using a rubber spatula gently make sure the

cake isn’t sticking to the sides of the pan and

then place a plate, upside down, on top.

Holding the pan and plate together, flip the

cake over so it sits on the plate upright then

carefully pull the pan off of the cake.

Let the cake cool completely.

Make the icing next by placing the

powdered sugar into a small bowl.

Add the vanilla and a little cider then stir or whisk

well until smooth and runny. If not runny enough

add a little more cider to get the consistency you

want. If too runny add more powdered sugar. You

are only drizzling the icing, not frosting the cake.

Drizzle the icing and serve.

    • Thank you I always use Crisco grease and make sure the flour coats the pan completely. It is non alcoholic unless it sits long enough to turn into hard apple cider. It never lasts that long in my house as I love apple cider. Lol

    • This was moist and easy to make. The original recipe was to brush the cake all over with butter then sprinkled with sugar. The cake I made is the same as the original recipe but I changed the sugar topping to drizzled icing.
