Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Apple Cider Glaze

I love Fall because it's when I can get back into the kitchen & start baking! After browsing all the pumpkin recipes I decided I would try a bundt cake type. Instead of using butterscotch pudding mix I used my coveted Jell-O pumpkin spice instant pudding mix...It added just the right amount of spice to the cake...And the apple glaze gave it a natural tangy sweetness. This is a combination of several recipes found throughout the internet with my own substitution for the pudding in the mix. I hope you'll enjoy this fall treat.

yellow cake mix**
1 box
jell-o instant pumpkin spice pudding mix**
4
eggs
1/4 c
vegetable oil
1/4 c
water
2 c

FOR APPLE CIDER GLAZE---

2 c
powdered sugar
1/4 tsp
pumpkin pie spice
3-6 Tbsp
apple cider

**SUBSTITUTION (IF PUMPKIN SPICE PUDDING MIX ISN'T AVAILABLE)

I'VE TRIED SEVERAL COMBINATIONS FOR SUBSTITUTS FOR THE PUMPKIN SPICE JELLO AND THE BEST IS USING 1 BOX OF YELLOW CAKE MIX, 1 BOX OF VANILLA INSTANT PUDDING MIX, AND 2 1/2 TEASPOONS OF PUMPKIN PIE SPICES

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350*.
Grease with shortening & flour a 12 inch tube/bundt cake pan.
2
mix pkg of the dry cake mix with the pkg of dry pudding mix together in large bowl & set aside.
3
in another large bowl lightly beat the 4 eggs with the oil, water, & pumpkin.
4
add the dry ingredients to the wet mixing until there are no large lumps. (be careful not to over mix)
5
Carefully fill pan with batter.
Bake at 350* for 45-50 min. (ovens vary so check at 45 min..insert a toothpick, if it comes out clean cake is done)
6
Remove to wire rack to cool.
While cooling make glaze by mixing the powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice with the apple cider. This should be thick but pourable.
7
When cake has cooled for about 15 minutes, leave on wire rack and place both cake & rack on a tray or sheet of waxed paper (for easy clean up). Pour the glaze on the slightly cooled cake.
When glaze has stopped dripping transfer to a serving plate.
