Poor long-suffering Molly, typed this recipe up for us when she was visiting in October after our apple picking excursion left us with a bounty of apples which led us into all sorts of baking adventures.
Molly would dearly love for me to give you the details on the recipe. I got it from Beth Schultz in Nashville, TN, a lovely gal who hosted a lovely cooking themed wedding shower for me and with whom I am no longer in contact -- as happens over and over again because I am a BAD communicator. The recipe came with an angel food cake pan and I do think fondly of Beth each time I make it. Unfortunately, I don't make it often because I am the main consumer of baked goods in our house and I don't need to eat that much apple cake.
So, please, enjoy a slice for me when you make it.
Before you start preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease an angel food or bundt cake pan.
3 large or medium apples,peeled, cored and thinly sliced
2 tsp cinnamon and 5 Ttbsp sugar---mix together and set aside.
3 cups flour [unsifted]
2 cups sugar
3 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
i cup of vegetable oil
1/4 cup orange juice
Beat together until smooth.
Pour half the batter into the greased pan.
Arrange half of the apple slices on top, and sprinkle with some of the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Cover with layers of remaining batter, apples and cinnamon mixture.
Bake for one hour and fifteen minutes, or until done.
