Add the eggs and vanilla and mix just until combined. Add the flour alternating with the apple cider mixture beginning with the flour and ending with the flour just until combined.
Pour the batter into your greased 10-cup bundt pan and bake the cake for approximately 40-50 minutes. The cake is done once an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes before inverting.

Steps to make the topping:
In a bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Brush the melted butter on the cake and immediately sprinkle it with the cinnamon sugar.
(It is best to complete this step in sections.) Allow to completely cool, then slice and serve!

 

If you are unable to find apple cider this time of year, Apple Cider Drink mix is also a great option.

 

Make sure that you grab Apple Cider (the drink) and not Apple Cider Vinegar. I hope you all enjoy!
