Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-cup bundt pan with baking spray and set it aside.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cardamom until combined. In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together the apple cider and applesauce and set it aside.

Step 3

Place the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, about 7-10 minutes. Start on low speed (3-and gradually increase the speed to high (8-9). Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure everything gets combined.

Step 4

Once the butter and sugars are creamed, add the eggs, one at a time, and beat on low (3-after each addition until mixed in. Scrape down the bowl and beat in the vanilla on medium (5-until mixed in.

Step 5

Add 1/3 of the flour mixture and to the bowl with the butter and beat until no more dry flour is visible. Start on low speed and gradually increase the speed. Add half the apple cider mixture and beat on medium until combined. Scrape down the bowl and beat in another 1/3 of the flour, followed by the other half of the apple cider, and finish with the last of the flour.

Step 6

Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and spread it out into an even layer. Bake the cake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Step 7

Allow the cake to cool for an hour in the bundt pan then carefully flip it out onto a cooling rack or cake plate to cool completely.

Step 8

Once the cake has completely cooled, whisk together the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Coat the entire outside and center of the cake with melted butter using a pastry brush. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture over the cake and in the center.

Step 9

Coat the sides by pouring cinnamon sugar in your hand and pressing it into the sides of the cake with your palms. Cinnamon and sugar will get everywhere - there isn't really a way to avoid it. I recommend working on a large surface that wipes clean easily. Slice and enjoy room temperature or warm!
