Apple CakePreheat oven to 350 degrees.
3 or 4 Granny Smith apples
5 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Peel and slice the apples into medium-sized slices. Mix the apples, sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl and let the mixture stand while you prepare the rest of the batter.
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup oil
1/2 cup orange juice
Mix these ingredients together in another bowl until completely blended. Pour about a third of the batter into a greased bundt pan, then add about half of the apples, then pour on another layer of batter, then another layer of apples, and finally pour on one last layer of batter.
Bake for about an hour and 20 minutes, or until the surface browns and cracks.
Here's what the finished product looks like in case anyone is curious:
