Ingredients

How to make it

  • Bring the apple cider to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Continue boiling the apple cider for 25 to 35 minutes, until it has reduced to slightly less than 1 cup in volume, about 7/8 cup.
  • Remove the cider from the heat and add the maple syrup; set the mixture aside.
  • Preheat and oven to 325F.
  • Lightly grease a 10-inch bundt cake pan and set it aside.
  • Cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, to the mixture, beating for a few seconds after each addition.
  • Stir together the remaining dry ingredients (flour, spices, baking powder, and salt) and then add half of the dry ingredients to the creamed butter-egg mixture and beat until most of the flour is incorporated.
  • Add the cooled apple cider-maple syrup reduction to the batter, beat it for 30 seconds, and then beat in the remainder of the dry ingredients.
  • Spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake it in a 325F oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
  • Shake it from side to side to loosen the cake from the pan (you should hear and feel a light thumping), and use a small rubber spatula to loosen any stubborn sides.
  • Place a serving platter over the top of the cake and invert it, removing the pan form the top of the cake to allow it to cool completely.
  • Dust with powdered sugar if desired
