Jewish Apple Cake
Jewish Apple Cake:
5-6 apples (i use a mix of cortland, macintosh & granny smith)
1 tablespoon cinnamon
5 tablespoons sugar
2 3/4 cups flour, sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional- i leave out)
Preheat oven to 350
Grease a tube pan (i use Bakers Joy)
Peel, core and chop apples into small chunks. Toss with cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. With a stand mixer (or hand mixer) mix together oil, orange juice, sugar and vanilla.
Mix wet & dry ingredients, then add the eggs, one at a time.
Make sure to scrape the bowl.
Pour half of batter into prepared pan & spread half of the apples over it.
Pour the remaining batter over the apples and arrange the remaining apples on top.
Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, or until a tester comes out clean.
