Jewish Apple Cake

I have been meaning to write this recipe out for Mel for the last six months (sorry!). It is one of my absolute favorite cakes. Cheers.

4 or 5 apples, cut in 1/4" slices
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
4 eggs
3 cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
5 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of salad oil
1/4 cup orange juice

Combine apples, 5 T of sugar, and cinnamon. Beat together eggs and 2 cups sugar. Add dry ingredients, salad oil, orange juice, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Pour 1/2 of batter into greased and floured tube pan. Stand up apples in the batter. Pour remaining sugar and cinnamon over apples. Pour rest of batter over top. Bake 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.

This is seriously one of the best cakes I've even eaten! And, you can pretend it's healthy because it's made with apples!

I second Mel's applaud for this. It's soooo good!
