Jewish Apple Cake

it wouldn't be fall without baking with apples!  jewish apple cake is one of the best
ways to use tart apples, such as mcintosh.  this is a very easy recipe that is modified
from one a catering client gave me many years ago:

6 mcintosh apples
1 T. cinnamon
5 T. sugar

2 -3/4 c. flour, sifted
1 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 c. vegetable oil
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. orange juice
2-1/2 t. pure vanilla
4 eggs
1 c. walnuts, chopped (optional)

preheat oven to 350*.   grease a bundt pan.  peel, core and chop apples into chunks.
toss with the cinnamon and sugar and set aside.

stir together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.  in a separate bowl,
whisk together the oil, orange juice, sugar and vanilla and then add the eggs, one at a time.
slowly incorporate the dry ingredients, mixing well.

pour half the mixture into the prepared pan and then spread half the apples over.  pour the
remaining batter over the apples and distribute the remaining apples on top.  bake for one hour
30 minutes or til tester comes out clean.

serve with 10-x sugar sprinkled over top or with whipped cream on side.
