"I love this cake! I had bought a new bundt pan was eager try it out when I found this recipe. Very good and buttery and the cider and spices really brings fall to mind. The only thing I changed after reading reviews, I wanted to continue the apple cider flavor and made an apple cider glaze in place of the icing recipe submitted. Thumbs up for the cake."

"Words cannot describe how good this cake was although I did drop the sugar in the cake from 3 cups to 2 cups. Three just sounded really excessive and two cups still left it plenty sweet. Everyone in the house loved this (no small task!)."
