This is a re post from 2013 and 2016

2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350. Grease or line cupcake pan. In a small saucepan, heat two cups apple cider to boiling, let simmer until reduced to one cup and set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, beat well. Add the baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt. Stir. Add the flour alternately with the apple cider until thoroughly combined. Pour into prepared cupcake pan, filling each cup 3/4 way full. Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the center cupcake comes out clean. Cool completely.

These sound so good. I guess it would be ok to use just regular apple juice, right?
