In another bowl, stir together 1 cup flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder, and add to butter mixture. Stir until just combined. Spread half of batter at bottom of pan (it will be a very thin layer). Spread apple chunks evenly over batter, then sprinkle about 1 cup of cinnamon streusel crumbs over apples. Spread remaining batter over crumbs and on top spread rest of cinnamon streusel. Bake 35-40 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Before removing ring of springform pan, run a thin knife around cake.
To make glaze, whisk together powdered sugar with apple cider and drizzle over cake.
