Making the Reduced Apple Cider for Glaze

Prepare Sauce reduction:  In large skillet add 4 cups of apple cider and cook over medium heat until cider reduces to 1 cup.  This will take one hour.  Once the reduction is finished remove from skillet. Separate the sauce in half into two separate small bowls. One bowl for glaze, one for brushing the cake while warm.

When your cake is baked while it is still warm, brush with cider glaze.  Use a clean pastry brush for this process.  The sauce will soak into the cake making it sooo good. You could prick the cake with a fork for help sauce go into the cake, but really it will soak in pretty well without pricking. After the sauce is absorbed, pour the other bowl of glaze over the top of the cake.  

Garnish with a large apple or create a mixture of cinnamon sugar and sprinkle over top of cake.
