Servings 10 servings


  • 1/2 cup of butter melted
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cloves
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of apple cider

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of granulate sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together, melted butter and sugar once mixed add the rest of the ingredients and mix with a mixer until full mixed. The mixture was runny until you get it all mixed together. Grease bundt pan. Pour mix evenly into bundt pan and cook for 35-38 minutes. Baking time may vary depending on oven. Mine was done at 35 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes and then remove from pan.
  • Mix cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkle on warm cake. I actually bought cinnamon sugar already mixed (in the spice section) so I could easily shake it on to the cake.
