How to reduce your apple cider:
Pour 1½ cups apple cider into a saucepan and place on low heat.
Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Continue stirring until the liquid is at ½ cup of cider reduction. This will take a total of approximately 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool before adding to the batter.
