Sparkling Cider Pound Cake

Pound cake is probably my husband’s all-time favorite dessert. This version was no exception! This sparkling cider pound cake recipe has been in my ever-growing “to try” file. When I found it recently, I knew it would be a perfect addition to #appleweek and a nice change from using fresh apples.

When I went looking for sparkling cider, at first, I had a difficult time finding it. I finally found a large display at Walmart and actually purchased a couple of bottles. Good thing! This recipe does not use a full bottle.

My boys were clamoring to try it and when they finally did, they loved it. I have to say, it’s been a while since I had sparkling cider, and boy it was good. Brought back memories.

This is the perfect pound cake. The texture is classic pound cake and while both the batter and glaze have sparkling cider, that flavor really comes through in the glaze and makes all the difference. I recommend not skipping the glaze.
