Mini Apple Cider Pound Cakes
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
3 cups sugar
6 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. apple pie spice
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 cup apple cider
1 Tablespoon Vain Mexican Vanilla extracted in Apple Brandy
6 (5x3 inch) disposable aluminum foil loaf pans
Vegetable cooking spray
Toppings: Bourbon Glaze
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 Tablespoons Vain Madagascar Vanilla extracted in Kentucky Bourbon
Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
Stir together flour and next 4 ingredients. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with apple cider, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat a low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
Lightly grease disposable loaf pans with cooking spray. Pour batter into prepared pans, and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks, and cool completely (about 1 hour). For glaze-topped cakes, spoon glaze over cooled cakes.
Bourbon Glaze: In a medium bowl, stir the confectioners' sugar and bourbon until combined. Add more vanilla if glaze is too thick.
