core and peel the apples and then cut each into 17 slices (fewer slices if using smaller apples) have a bowl of water that has a whole lemon squeezed into it place apples into water and then onto a plate to dry and set aside this will keep them from turning brown
preheat oven to 380 degrees
in the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment beat butter and sugar until well mixed
with the mixer running add one egg at a time beating until smooth scrap sides and beat until light and fluffy about three minutes
in a medium bowl sift flour baking powder baking soda and salt.
measure out cream and add cooled reduced cider to cream
with the mixer on low alternate adding the flour mixture and the cream cider mixture until well combined scrape sides and mix until smooth
grease a 9X12 square pan liberally with vegetable shortening and pour in the batter
arrange the apples outer edges up into the top of the batter
in a small bowl or cup mix the sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the cake and place in the oven for 40-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean
while the cake is baking make the glaze
place the second cup of apple cider on the stove as before only reduce down to two tablespoons watch it that it doesn’t evaporate too far
place the confectioners sugar in a small bowl and add the reduced cider along with one tablespoon of milk or cream and stir add the last tablespoon of milk or cream a little at a time until desired consistency It should be thick but runny enough to drizzle off the end of a spoon
when the cake comes out of the oven cool to room temperature and cut into nine squares
drizzle the glaze over each portion letting it run down the sides and serve
serve with vanilla ice cream if desired
