  • By Butternut Bakery

    15 ingredients

    • 3 Eggs, large
    Canned Goods
    • 1/2 cup Apple sauce, unsweetened
    Baking & Spices
    • 1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
    • 3 cups Bob's red mill all purpose flour, Organic
    • 3/4 cup Brown sugar, light packed
    • 2 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
    • 3/4 cup Granulated sugar
    • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
    • 1 cup Powdered sugar
    • 1 tsp Salt
    • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
      Oils & Vinegars
      • 1 cup Oil
      • 1 3/16 cup Apple cider
      • 4 tbsp Butter, unsalted


          1. Preheat the oven to 350F and coat the inside of a 10-cup bundt pan with nonstick spray. See notes in the post above about using different pans and methods to prevent your cake from sticking.
          2. Grab two bowls, one large and one medium.
          3. In the large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients (flour, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt).
          4. In the medium bowl whisk together all of the wet ingredients (apple cider, apple sauce, oil, eggs, and vanilla).
          5. Pour the wet into the dry and use a rubber spatula to combine. You may be left with a few small lumps in the batter but that’s totally fine. Just get it as smooth as you can without over mixing it.
        1. Pour the batter into your prepped bundt pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
        2. Allow the cake to cool for 15-20 minutes then turn it out onto a cooling rack.
        3. Once it’s completely cooled (about 30 minutes), prep the coating.
        4. Mix together the melted butter and apple cider in a small cup or bowl. Do the same for the cinnamon and sugar in another bowl.
        5. Brush the butter and apple cider mixture over the entire cake with a pastry brush, using up every last drop.
        6. Quickly switch to the cinnamon sugar and press it into every inch of the cake.
        7. Drizzle on the apple cider glaze before serving. Mix the two ingredients together, adding one tsp of apple cider at a time until you reach the perfect consistency. It should be pourable but not too thin.
