Cider Gingerbread Bundt Cake
This Cider Gingerbread Bundt Cake did not come to play. It’s dangerous, sexy, sweet & oh, so satisfying. Come winter, I’m all about the Gingerbread. Let’s jump right in!
As a kid, I was not all about Gingerbread. My Grandaddy would eat Ginger Snaps out of a paper bag while watching the news. He usually offered me some, but they were WAY too strong for me. The ginger was Really strong & too spicy for my young taste buds. You feel me on this, right? For years, I avoided gingerbread like the plague.
Thankfully taste buds evolve. As an adult (but still a kid at heart), I love Gingerbread that has some kick to it. That’s why I am Really Into King Arthur Flour’s Cider Gingerbread Bundt Cake Recipe. The cake has strong flavors paired with rich molasses & a gorgeous caramel color. I mean, check out that batter! I feel like I want this color in my wardrobe. It screams fall & winter to me.
The Star of the Cider Gingerbread Cake – Boiled Cider
While the Cider Gingerbread Bundt Cake satisfies my need for a substantial ginger flavor, the glaze is really the star of the show. Before we get into it, I have to tell you about Boiled Cider. What the heck is boiled cider & do I Really need it? Yes! You need this Boiled Cider in your life.
First, the Boiled Cider is just that – boiled cider. It’s got no extra junk in it, so the flavor is unreal. Imagine hundreds of delicious apples cooked down into a syrup- YUM! I’m not a fan of specialty ingredients unless they can do a lot for me. It’s a good thing that Wood’s Boiled Cider can be used in a ton of different ways.
For one, you can make cider from the concentrate. I’m down with that. Also, Boiled Cider is also a great addition to any recipe that has apples; apple turnovers, apple doughnuts, muffins, apple pie, apple coffee cake, etc. You can even use it in a cocktail. Did someone say apple pie martini? If nothing else, pour some on ice cream. Boiled Cider is super tasty no matter how you decide to use it.
There’s a Hole in This Cake
Okay, back to the glaze. The Cider Gingerbread Bundt Cake glaze is as rich as Nene Leakes. It’s very rich, bitch! I love Bravo’s Real Housewives in case you didn’t know. Butter, boiled cider, spices & sugar complete this cake. The glaze ramps this cake up from a nice bundt to a showstopper. Remember My Big Fat Greek Wedding? If Ian’s parents brought this cake to the party, Tula’s family would have loved it!
I am Really Into This Cider Gingerbread Bundt Cake. The glaze is on point, the cake is delicious & guess what? It’s easy to make. Bring this to a holiday get together & you’re sure to satisfy & wow all the guests!
Speaking of that, what is your “go to dish” for Holiday parties?
