When it comes time to purchasing apple cider, you might wonder what the difference between apple cider and apple juice is. The labeling of apple cider and apple juice can be a bit tricky, and in most places, there is no legal standard to how the two are labeled. The following are the three approaches to the labeling of both apple cider and apple juice. There are a few states in the U.S. where there is a distinct difference between apple cider and juice. For example, in Massachusetts, the Department of Agricultural Resources specifies that fresh apple cider is raw apple juice that is apple juice that has not undergone a filtration process to help remove the coarse particles of pulp or sediment. Whereas apple juice is apple juice that has been filtered to help remove the solids and pasteurized so that the juice will stay fresh longer. Apple cider from these states is most often an opaque, highly perishable apple drink that is available at farm stands and local markets in the fall. It's apple juice, but unfiltered and often unpasteurized. In unpasteurized apple cider, the naturally occurring yeasts can cause fermentation, which makes the drink slightly fizzy and alcoholic over time.

When it comes to using a bundt pan for this apple cider bundt cake recipe, there are a few tips you will want to follow to help ensure success. A good idea when using bundt pans for your dessert recipes and recipes with granny smith apples is to coat the pan with some butter and flour. Even if you have a nonstick bundt cake pan, it doesn't hurt to have some extra insurance with baking, especially if your bunt mold boasts a more intricate design. Although you might be tempted to reach for that can of nonstick spray, it's better to resist the urge. As the cake recipe bakes and rises, the cake grips onto the sides of the bundt pan for stability. A slippery side to the cake pan can prevent a strong rise in the cake. So before you fill the bundt pan with cake batter, coat the bundt pan in butter, then add flour. Tip and shake the bundt pan until the butter is coated in the flour. Then discard any excess flour from the pan and then pour in the cake batter. Alternatively, you can also look for baking spray or baker's release, which both contain flour. Another mistake people make when using bundt cake pans is not filling the bundt pan properly. You want the cake batter to have room to move without going over the sides and then creating a mess in your oven. So if you are using the correct pan for the cake recipe you are preparing this won't be an issue, but it's good to be knowledgeable about what a properly filled bundt pan looks like.
