Family Recipe Friday - Romanian (or Jewish) Apple Cake

I found a recipe for Romanian Apple Cake on, but my husband's family has made a "Jewish Apple Cake" for years, and I thought it was cool that their Romanian heritage has a little to do with it.

Jewish Apple Cake  
Preheat oven to 350*.
Mix & put aside:
3 apples sliced and peeled
2 t. cinnamon
¼ c. sugar

In large mixing bowl combine all in order:
4 eggs                       1 T. baking powder
2 ¼ c. sugar              2 ½ t. vanilla
1 c. oil                       3 c. flour
¼ t. salt                     7 T. OJ

In a well-greased bundt cake pan, alternate cake mix with apples, begin and ending with batter.  Keep apples from touching sides of pan. Bake for 1 ¼ - 1 ½ hours. Let cool for 10 min. or longer and invert onto serving plate.
