Cider Glazed Apple Cake.

I’m rolling my apple cider obsession over from last week into this week.  I had a lone honeycrisp apple, just sitting in the basket.  I couldn’t just let it sit there.  I had to do something make something.  Plus, I still had plenty of apple cider in the fridge.  I’m all about some apple baked goods lately (I have a killer cookie recipe coming at you tomorrow!).

This cake recipe was derived from a bread recipe.  It’s dense and moist like an apple bread would be, and tastes just as glorious as any cake.

Topped with a simple glaze (plus caramel sauce if you dare), it’s the perfect follow up to Sunday dinner.  And it’s also the perfect breakfast Monday morning.  Judge not.

3. Stir in flour, baking soda, apple pie spice, and salt until just combined.
