This was my most requested cake at the farmers markets. I sold this cake for 31 years! It is a delicious cake that will satisfy any apple lover for sure!
You can either bake this cake in a 10″ tube pan or 2-7″ pans which is what I do. whichever pan you choose to use, prepare them by spraying with pan spray then flouring the pan.
Preheat your oven to 350*
- 3 cups flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup oil ( use what you like)
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon grated orange peel (I use dried orange peel)
- 4 eggs
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 3 large apples, sliced
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
Place all ingredients in your mixer bowl. Blend on low speed till well blended.
Now place 1/4 of the batter in each pan, then place 1/4 of the cinnamon apple’s on each cake. Then place the remaining batter in each pan, then place the 1/4 cinnamon apples on each cake.
Now place in the preheated oven for 45 min. to 1 hour. You will need to start checking at 45 minutes, using a skewer. I usually have to bake mine for 1 hour, I bake in a convection oven.
Now grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
