If I feel certain about anything, it’s that my apple cake recipe is a winner. However, as people who know me know, just because something is good doesn’t mean it’s good enough. For this reason, I must continue to try and innovate as much as I can. In this case, it was a recipe that caught my eye called “Apple Cider Donut Cake” that I thought I absolutely had to try. Unlike my other apple cake, it doesn’t use whole fruit, favoring apples cooked in apple cider (I use the boiled cider extract) and then pureed and added to the dry ingredients. For the final step, a shower of cinnamon sugar. I really loved the overall feeling of the cake, even if I found it wasn’t at all donut-like and lacked OOMPH. It was still a hit at parties.
