  • 6 apples cored, pared and sliced
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a large bundt pan with non-stick spray. 

  2. Combine apple pieces, 5 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon in a colander in the sink. Set aside to drain.

  3. Sift flour, baking soda, the rest of the sugar, and salt into a large mixing bowl.

  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour in oil, eggs, orange juice and vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon until well-blended.

  5. Spoon 1/3 of batter into a greased 9" or 10" tube or bundt pan. Place a ring of the apple mixture over batter, being careful not to let the apples touch the side of the pan. Cover completely with 1/3 of batter. Add balance of apples to pan, and spoon remaining batter over them.

  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 and 1/4 hours. Allow cake to cool in pan completely before unmolding.
