Yields8 ServingsPrep Time10 minsCook Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr 10 mins

For The Cake
 unsalted butter, for greasing the pan
 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for the pan
 2 tsp baking powder
 2 tsp ground cinnamon
 ¾ tsp kosher salt
 ¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
 pinch of ground cloves
 ½ cup vegetable oil
 ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
 ½ cup granulated sugar
 ½ cup coconut sugar
 3 large eggs
 1 large Sweet apple, unpeeled and shredded
For The Glaze
 1 cup apple cider
 2 tbsp unsalted butter
 ½ cup confectioners' sugar
 pinch of kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 350 ⁰F. Butter and flour an 8 1/2-inch-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and cloves. In a large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: oil, applesauce, sugars, eggs and apple.


Then fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Transfer to the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Afterwards, transfer to a rack to cool slightly, then remove the cake from the pan and let it cool completely.

How To Prepare The Glaze:

When the cake has cooled, prepare the glaze: Bring the apple cider to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Continue to cook the cider until it has reduced to 1/3 cup, about 10 minutes. Add the butter, confectioners’ sugar and salt. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and continue to cook the mixture, whisking often, until it has become syrupy and thickened slightly, about 4 minutes. Set aside to cool until it thickens slightly.
