Vegan Apple Cider Bundt Cake

September 23, 2020
Apple cider is one of my favorite fall treats and it’s finally making its way back into season. The only thing I love more than the cider itself is a warm apple cider donut. I usually look forward to getting these from a local farm stand but it hasn’t been as easily accessible this year. I had to take it upon myself to make my own giant donut ring to enjoy.

This is a great way to use up some of your fruit from apple picking. You can make your own cider by pressing some apples and mulling the juice with some spices, and you can easily throw a few apples in the blender to make applesauce. You can, of course, use store-bought cider and applesauce if you would like to save a little time. I sprinkled my cake with cinnamon and sugar but it would also be nice to have it with some sort of glaze.
