For the Cake

  • 1 box Yellow cake mix 
  • 3/4 cup Apple cider 
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce 
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Brown sugar 
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ Cinnadust™ Seasoning 
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • Pam® Non-Stick Baking Spray 

For the Dipping Glaze

  • 1 cup Powdered sugar 
  • 1/4 cup Apple cider 


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the dry cake mix, apple cider, applesauce, water, and eggs. Add in the brown sugar and vanilla to the cake mix batter. 
  • Pour mix into a well-greased bundt pan. 
  • Place bundt pan on center rack and bake for 45 minutes. Test with a toothpick by sticking into the middle of the cake; if it comes out clean, it is ready. Remove from heat and allow to cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes. 

For the Dipping Glaze

  • While the cake is cooking, prepare apple cider glaze. Add powdered sugar and 1/4 cup apple cider to a small bowl and whisk to desired consistency. 
  • Once the cake has cooled, brush the entire surface with melted butter. Rub Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ Cinnadust™ Seasoning over cake until evenly coated. 
  • Serve with apple cider glaze dip (or drizzle glaze on top of the cake) and enjoy!
