September marks the beginning of back to school, crisper air and Pumpkin Spice Lattes LOL! I am on an apple kick right now and this Apple Cider Bundt Cake is one of those cakes that you’ll make over and over, for potlucks, special occasions, holidays, and just at home to eat for dessert or with coffee or tea at breakfast. 

It’s so easy to make and it just screams fall in cake form!
