Simple Semi Homemade Apple Cider Cake


Team Pumpkin Spice or Apple Cider? I am apple cider all the way. Don’t get me wrong I love a good pumpkin pie more than anything but pumpkin pie flavored foods that shouldn’t be pumpkin pie flavored just don’t sit well with me. When I was little my father worked in an old-fashioned cider mill, before pasteurization became a thing. I grew up on this. We froze gallons of cider every year to have all winter long. To this day I am apple cider all the way.

Verdict: This was a delicious and simple cake for the kids to make. Nice enough to serve for a fall brunch or dessert for a football game day. The apple and extra spices make a nice addition to a simple boxed cake mix.
