This tasty apple glaze relies for its superior flavor on thick, dark boiled cider.

At a glance

1 cup


Choose your measure:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons boiled cider
  • 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons milk, 1/2 & 1/2, light cream, or heavy cream
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • generous pinch of salt
  • *Use enough liquid to produce a thick glaze, a bit thicker than molasses; it should just barely pour.
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional


  1. Stir all of the ingredients together, starting with the lesser amount of milk or cream. Add additional sugar or liquid if needed to make the glaze the consistency of molasses.
  2. Drizzle or spread the glaze atop doughnuts, cupcakes, bars, an iced cake, or pie.
