1/2 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. Martinelli's sparkling apple cider, divided
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 325 F.
Grease and flour a loaf pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening, and sugar together.
Beat in the eggs one at a time.
In a medium bowl, combine the salt, baking powder, and flour. Stir to evenly combine. Add alternately with 1/2 c. sparkling cider to the butter mixture, and beat until well incorporated.
Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
While the cake is cooling, make a glaze.
In a medium bowl, whisk 1/4 c. sparkling cider and the powdered sugar together until smooth. Pour over the cooled cake. Enjoy!
This cake did not last long enough for me to get any pictures.
