Only the Apples Know!

This week Judy L is looking for recipes using Orange Juice.  We were invited out to a friends house for dinner and I decided to make a cake.  I decided to make a Jewish Apple Cake.  My friend from Maryland gave me this recipe years ago, but since my husband doesn't eat apples I have not made it in years.  The family we were going to see likes apples and it makes a huge cake that is to go into a tube pan or bundt pan, but since I am sharing this cake I made it in two loaf pans.

Jewish Apple Cake

4 large tasty Apples, peeled and sliced
2 t. Cinnamon
1/4 c sugar
Mix together and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together in large bowl
3 c sifted flour
3 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 1/4 c sugar

Add to dry mix and mix in all at one time
1 c oil
4 eggs, unbeaten
1/3 c orange juice
2 1/2 t vanilla

Grease and flour tube, bundt or 2 loaf pans.
Pour half of the cake mixture into bottom of pan(s).
Top cake with half the apple mixture.  Top with rest
of cake mixture and then the remaining apples.
Bake in 350 degree oven 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until cake
starts to pull away from side of pan.

Cool and remove from pan.
