Apple Cider Doughnut Cake

Apple Cider Doughnut Cake

Hello everyone! I'm Amy from The Little Farm Diary and  I'm just tickled pink to be sharing one of my favorite fall recipes with y'all here at Blissful And Domestic! I LOVE this recipe for Thanksgiving because it can be made a couple of days ahead and kept in the fridge and we all love goodies that can be made ahead of time for Thanksgiving, right?? It's also a good traveler if you find yourself over the river and through the woods to grandma's house for Thanksgiving! I love that too! 

Apple Cider Doughnut Cake

So here's what you'll need:

For Cake:
1 1/2 cups apple cider
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
