Apple Cider Bundt Cake

It’s Bundt Bakers day today and our challenge was to use a favorite beverage to make our cake. Since it’s fall I chose Apple Cider as mine. One of my favorite cakes to bake in the fall is my mom’s apple bundt cake. I had spotted this one however in an old magazine I was reading and opted to bake this one instead, only because it had a buttermilk glaze that coats the cake after it is baked.


I had to take this cake to a pot luck dinner so these pictures were taken there with my cell phone.
