Apple Cider Pudding Cake is a favorite recipe of my sister’s for many decades now. Everytime she makes this cake it is a HUGE hit with all of our family. It’s moist, delicious, perfectly spicy and a simple dessert for any evening.

  • CAKE:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 Tbs. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 Tbs. melted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cup chopped granny smith apples
  • 1 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs. butter


  • Butter an 8×8 inch square baking dish. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, 1 cup brown sugar, milk, melted butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients until just combined. Gently fold in apples. Spread in prepared pan.
  • In a small saucepan, bring apple cider, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 cup brown sugar to a boil. Pour slowly and carefully over the batter. Bake for 35 minutes. Meanwhile, put streusel ingredients in food processor (you can use a bowl and cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork) and pulse until butter is cut up and mixture is crumbly. After the cake has baked for 35 minutes, sprinkle streusel topping evenly over the cake and bake 8-10 minutes more (until a toothpick inserted into the top layer of the cake comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs).
  • Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (don’t let the cake sit too long or some of the pudding will be asorbed in the cake topping – try and eat within 20-30 minutes.
