Apple Cider Rum Bundt Cake

After having some good luck + thoroughly enjoying my apple cider donuts (yeah, those were gone quickly!), I wanted to try making a cake version for the holidays – this time with some added fun. Yes, I made an apple cider rum bundt cake Now this recipe is refined sugar free + gluten free, so yeah – also guilt-free!

This bundt cake turned out super soft + rich in flavor. I definitely plan on using this recipe as a base for more cakes to come!

A few notes: If you don’t feel like adding the rum, totally fine! If you want a bit more sweetness, add an additional 1/4 cup of maple syrup to the recipe. I know my family isn’t totally used to the ‘refined-sugar free’ options. Also, if you don’t want to make the apple toppings, skip it!

Now go enjoy the apple cider rum bundt cake + let me know what you think!
