While at first glance, these may appear very much like my recent Mini Apple Cake Bites recipe
(just in a larger form), these are not quite the same. I found an old bottle of Angry Orchard Hard Apple Cider in the fridge that had gone past it's "best if used by" date, so naturally I wanted to try baking with it.
Much to my surprise, it made these apple cakes smell really, really good. The cakes remained moist and had a great floral kind of apple smell as I ate them over a three day period! There might be something to baking with this hard cider stuff.
I need to circle back around and get a better photo for these at some point. Quite honestly, this was photographed really quick just for Instagram's tall photo ratio, but I wanted to get the recipe in here, so I don't misplace it.

*** CINNAMON CRUNCH TOPPING ***
Mix the Cinnamon Crunch Topping
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup crumbled graham crackers
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons butter (cold)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Add all the ingredients to a bowl and using a fork, "cut" the butter
into the mix until everything is thoroughly combined. (Just keep
pressing down on the butter with a fork until there's no visible signs
of butter left.)
