I had ordered apples from a local organic store and they sent me huge ones. So I had to use them up as they are too big for eating so found a recipe of my mom's and tweaked it adding more juice and I sprinkle sugar on top for a crunch.

How To Make apple cake

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 10 inch tube pan or Bundt pan
  • 2
    Apples: peel and chop the apples into cubes. Should be about 2 pounds, toss with the 5 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. This can be done after you sift your flour and gather your wet ingredients. The longer it sits the more liquid it makes.
  • 3
    In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • 4
    In a medium bowl whisk together the sugar, oil, orange juice and vanilla. Add the wet to the dry ingredients. I use a wooden spoon.
  • 5
    Add eggs one at a time beating to fully incorporate into the batter.
  • 6
    Add a thin layer of batter on bottom of pan, add 1/4 apples and try to leave the liquid in the bowl. Drizzle the batter over the apples, it won't cover them but the batter will spread when baking. Do this 3 times and end with a layer of batter.
  • 7
    Bake for 1 and 1/2 hours (mine went 1 hr.) or until when tested comes out dry. Cool before removing from pan.
