Ingredients

For the apples:
  • 1 1/2 pounds Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For the batter:
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

Directions

Special equipment: Bundt pan

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the apples with the lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl and let stand while you make the batter.

Lightly whisk the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the oil, melted butter, sugar, vanilla and water and whisk until smooth. In a separate mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, and the baking powder. Use a whisk to mix the dry ingredients together. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the wet mixture and stir just until incorporated. Do not overmix.

Generously grease and lightly flour a Bundt pan. Pour 1/4 of the batter into the pan, and then arrange a 1/3 of the apples around the top of the batter. Make 2 more layers of apples, smoothing the batter over them after each addition. Top off with the last of the batter and smooth.

Bake about 1 hour 10 minutes, until risen, the top is nicely browned, and a sharp knife inserted in the middle of the cake comes out dry. Let cool in the pan until the cake starts to release from the sides before unmolding.
