Apple Swirl Cake
Made this apple cake a while ago, and finally got the photos uploaded. The cake was moist and delicious. I used half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour to make it a bit healthier, reduced sugar to 1 1/2 cups, which was sweet enough for us. Also added 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the apples, and it was a great addition.
Peel, core, and chop apples into small pieces. Mix together with 3 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Set aside. In large bowl, combine sugar and cooking oil; beat. Add eggs, orange juice, and vanilla.
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; add to creamed mixture. Beat until smooth. Pour one third batter into greased and floured 12 cup bundt pan alternating with one half apple mixture. Repeat. End with layer of batter on top.
Bake at 325℉ (160℃) for 60 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan 10 to 15 minutes; turn out on wire rack or serving plate to complete cooling. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
