Apple Cider Cake with Malted Vanilla Frosting
Hi guys! How are you all doing?? I hope you are having a great week and enjoying the season. The air just changed around here in Upstate NY and it is finally feeling like fall. In addition to making this apple cider cake last weekend, I broke out the scarves and long sweaters. I LOVE fall fashion and colors!!
This year, I am in love with burgundy. Have you guys noticed burgundy is everywhere? Looks like it is the color of the fall and I am loving it. I got some burgundy pants, sweaters and a few scarves to mix and match with different classic pieces. I am excited for the season!!
Okay back to this fall cake! Apple cider cake with malted vanilla frosting.. doesn’t it sound amazing?? I just love the homey flavors at play here. A moist, fluffy and crumbly apple cake with fresh apples and apple cider. The warm cakes are drenched in apple cider syrup before being topped with malted vanilla frosting. I was a bit skeptical about the combination of apples and malted vanilla at first but then I tasted this cake and all doubt was put to rest. It is just a great combination that I can’t wait for you to try.
This lovely cake is from Cake Magic!: Mix & Match Your Way to 100 Amazing Combinations, one of my new favorite cookbooks. The principle is pretty simple and creative. You choose a batter, flavor it with exciting syrup, add a frosting to create cake magic! It is an easy way to bake luscious, flavorful cakes like this apple cider cake. If you are a cake fanatic like myself, this is the book for you. Check it out and I know you will love it! Adapted from Cake Magic with permission from publisher.
