Enjoy this cake quickly... once everyone tries it, it will disappear fast! No matter where my brother was stationed in the Navy, this cake was always at the top of his care package request list.

This fresh apple Bundt cake is a must-have for any gathering, but most certainly in the fall. The aroma will make your kitchen smell like it's time for Halloween and bobbing for apples. Orange juice gives this moist cake an extra layer of flavor. We love the bits of cinnamon sugar-coated fresh apples throughout the cake. It's a really nice surprise when you get one in a bite.
