Apple Cider Caramel Glazed Pound Cake

Oh Fall how I love thee. I decided earlier this week that I wanted to make something with either apples or pumpkins. Well I stumbled upon this amazing recipe and decided apple is was. It actually called for apple cider but you get the point. Let me just say that my boys {including the hubs} were fighting over licking the bowl. It smelled like Apple Hill and it tasted amazing!! The kids have eaten it all week for breakfast too. I love when breakfast is just ‘that easy’. So here ya go — enjoy!!

Apple Cider Caramel Glazed Pound Cake
recipe from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody 

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup shortening
3 cups granulated sugar
6 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup apple cider
1 tsp. vanilla bean paste {I used regular vanilla}

Preheat oven to 325F. You can use a large tube pan or I made 5 small loaves. Grease whatever pan you are using with baking spray.

Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment cream together the shortening and butter. Add sugar ¼ of a cup at a time. When all sugar is incorporated beat on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes.

Add eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after every addition.

Add the vanilla and beat another 30 seconds.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and spices in a medium bowl.

Starting with the flour mixture alternate adding the flour, then the cider, than flour, cider, and end with flour. Beat until all the ingredients are well combined.

Tube pan bake for 90 minutes. Small loaves took about 70 minutes. Just watch your oven to make sure a knife inserted in middle of cake comes out clean.
