    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.

      I made this last weekend and used 1/2 cup of homemade applesauce, 1/4 cup oil and 1/2 stick of butter. The texture was perfect! I also added a maple glaze to the finished cake. So delicious!

      I give this 4 stars only because of the high fat content. I used 3/4 cup of oil and 3/4 cup of apple butter. I drained the apple juice into the batter and stirred it.I will tryv almond extract the next time. It came out wonderful. Will make again.
