Apple Cider Cake

I had a giant jug of apple cider on hand from a recipe earlier in the week.  Didn't want it to waste, so I decided to work it into some kind of dessert.  With all the savory things I've been making on The Devilish Dish, it's about time we had something sweet!
Everything you need to make the
Apple Cider Cake!

Start by creaming the butter and sugar together.
Combine dry ingredients.
Combine apple cider and vanilla.

Add eggs one at a time.

Combine dry ingredients with creamed mixture.

Combine  cider-vanilla mixture with creamed mixture.

Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon.
Coat greased pan with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Pour batter into prepared 10-inch tube or Bundt pan.

Combine icing ingredients together in a saucepan.

Allow cake to cool in pan on a
cooling rack for 15 minutes.

Turn cake out onto serving platter.

Pour half of icing mixture over warm cake.

The finished product! 
And the house smells awesome.
