Ingredients

  • 3

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • 2

    cups plus 5 tablespoons sugar, divided

  • 1

    cup vegetable oil

  • 4

    eggs

  • cup orange juice

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • 2-½

    teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 4

    medium tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 2

    teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, 2 cups of the sugar, oil, eggs, orange juice, salt and vanilla. Beat until thoroughly combined. In another bowl, toss apples with cinnamon and remaining sugar. Spread one-third of batter in a greased 10-in. tube pan. Cover with half of the apples. Repeat layers. Spoon remaining batter over top. Bake at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Just before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 12-16 servings.
