1 cup of cider, boiled down to 1/4 cup. Let cool.
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup cream
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

In deep fryer or heavy 3-quart saucepan, heat 3 to 4 inches oil to 350 degrees. Meanwhile lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off.
In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; blend well. Fold in cream, buttermilk, apple cider reduction, vanilla, and egg until thoroughly mixed, but do not over-mix.
