  • 4 large apples
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup neutral cooking oil I use grapeseed.
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup orange juice no pulp.
  1. Peel, core and slice apples thickly.
  2. Add cinnamon and sugar to apples and let sit.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Grease and flour tube pan.
  5. Combine next six ingredients (flour through orange juice) in a mixing bowl.
  6. Stir well.
  7. Pour thin layer of batter into prepared tube pan.
  8. Layer in about 1/2 of the apples taking pains to distribute as evenly as possible.
  9. Pour another layer of batter.
  10. Layer in the rest of the apples.
  11. Finish up with the batter.
  12. Bake at 350 for one to one and a half hours until toothpick (or long thin knife) inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  13. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack about 10 to 20 minutes, at least until you can handle the pan.
  14. Turn out onto a plate then re-invert onto cake plate (so that the top while baking is also the top now.)
  15. Dust with powdered sugar (optional.)
Recipe Notes

** Batter is unusually thick and sticky. If you're like me and you're always convinced you're doing it wrong, see video in post.
** Cake will bake more quickly in a dark colored metal tube pan than the one pictured in this post (lightly colored non-stick coating.) The difference could be about a half an hour. Check for color and doneness accordingly.
** Apples will produce some juice if they marinate in the cinnamon and sugar long enough. Feel free to add it to the batter as you layer the apples in.
