Baby It’s Cold Outside!

Nothing warms the cockles of your heart quite like comfort food on a cold day. Warming up from the inside out may we recommend a warm apple cider while preparing this favorite recipe? When picking a glaze, we’ve tried the lemon glaze and it was lovely.

Taken from the Southern Living catalogue, this Apple Cider Pound Cake is sweet and filling, perfectly paired with a cup of decaf coffee to end the day, while snuggled under a soft, fuzzy blanket.


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325°. Beat butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.

  • Stir together flour and next 4 ingredients. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with apple cider, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

  • Lightly grease disposable loaf pans with cooking spray. Pour batter into prepared pans, and place on a baking sheet. For streusel-topped cakes, sprinkle about 2 Tbsp. Streusel Topping over batter in each pan.

  • Bake at 325° for 40 to 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks, and cool completely (about 1 hour). For glaze-topped cakes, spoon desired glaze over cooled cakes.
