Add Apple Glaze to Everything
If you’re wondering where you can use this glaze, I think you should ask yourself a different question. How about “where can’t I use this apple glaze?” In my opinion, there are very few things that an apple cider glaze can’t do.
In my ongoing search of all the flavors of fall, I have realized that adding just a hint of apple flavor can give a little tangy sweetness to anything. This simple glaze with a hint of apple flavor is no exception. Often, my problem is simply knowing how easy this is to whip up- I want to add it to everything! Nothing will be left untouched by a delicious little glaze in this kitchen!
Ingredients for Apple Cider Glaze
Two ingredients. That’s all you’ll need to whip up this incredible glaze that you can drizzle over all.the.things!
- Apple Cider – Can you go out and buy a locally produced apple cider while you’re out picking apples with the family? Absolutely, and I encourage you to do just that! However, the grocery store apple cider will work just fine here. You can replace the apple cider with apple juice, for a less prominent flavor.
- Powdered Sugar- This is a finely ground sugar that is made by grinding granulated sugar into a powder. It usually contains an anti-caking property to prevent clumping, which makes it ideal for frostings, icings, and glazes of all kinds. You can make your own by pulsing sugar in a food processor until light and fluffy. Note: do not use organic powdered sugar as it doesn’t dissolve well.
How to Make Apple Glaze
Are you ready? Because I am! I wish I had some more of this apple cider glaze right now! You can make this frosting in an electric mixer or stir by hand, it’s up to you!
- Combine – In a medium bowl, combine the powdered sugar and apple cider.
- Mix Until Desired Consistency is Reached – Mix until lumps disappear. You can add more cider at the end if you’d like your glaze to be a touch thinner- the consistency is completely up to you!
