This Apple Cake is the perfect dessert to celebrate the coming of fall, loaded with crisp apples with just the perfect amount of cinnamon and sugar for that sweet treat.
- 6 to 8 apples
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 5 to 7 tablespoons sugar
- 2 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup canola oil
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 4 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a tubed pan (like an Angel food cake pan). Peel, core and chop apples into chunks. Toss with cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
Stir flour, baking powder and salt together. In a separate bowl, mix oil, white sugar, orange juice, vanilla and eggs together.
Combine dry ingredients with wet, and thoroughly mix.
Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared pan. Spread 1/2 of the apples on top of batter. Pour remaining batter over the top of apples, then top with the remaining apples.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 1 and 1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely before loosening with a knife around the edges and removing from pan onto a serving platter.
