Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a standard bundt pan and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together oil, eggs, brown sugar and sugar until smooth.
  3. Add ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and vanilla. Beat until incorporated.
  4. Turn the mixer to low, and add a third of the flour, followed by half of the cider, then another third of flour, followed by the remaining cider then the remaining flour. Beat until combined.
  5. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan and bake for about 45-50 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Set aside to cool completely before glazing.
Make the glaze:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cake.
Plan ahead:
  1. This cake freezes nicely. For best results, freeze without the glaze and add it just before serving.
