Jewish Apple Cake

This is one of the recipes that I received in the Recipe Scavenger Hunt.

Jewish Apple Cake

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/4 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3-4 apples - peeled, cored and sliced - Granny Smith are great!
ground cinnamon for sprinkling on apples

Preheat oven to 350 degreed F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 10 inch tube pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder and 2 cups of the sugar. Stir in the vegetable oil, beated eggs, orange juice and vanilla. Mix well.

1. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared pan. Top with 1/2 of the sliced apples and sprinkle with cinnamon. Pour the remaining batter over the top and layer the remaining sliced apples and sprinkle with cinnamon.
2. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 70 to 90 minutes.
