Bettie’s Apple Cake
3 cups flour 1 ½ cups sugar 2 tsps baking powder ¼ tsp salt 4 large eggs lightly beaten 250ml vegetable oil ¼ cup orange juice 2 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract 2-3 apples peeled & thinly sliced 1 tsp cinnamon & a ¼ cup sugar mixed together
Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, add eggs, oil, orange juice and vanilla extract and mix together. (This batter will be quite thick). Pour half the mixture into a greased 23cm round baking tin. Cover with half the apples and half the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Repeat with batter. Finally arrange remaining apples over the batter and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 180° for 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours or until a skewer comes clean when tested. (This cake does take a long time to cook) Delicious served warm by itself or when cool, cut into wedges and serve with cream.
