This cake truly is an American Classic and is definitely a cake that you need to make. Trust me on this one!
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, vegetable oil, orange juice, and vanilla extract.
Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and stir to combine with a spatula or wooden spoon.
Add the eggs to the mixture one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Prepare the tube pan with butter (or margarine) and flour before adding the cake batter to the pan. Lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper will also help with the release.
Add a thin layer of the cake batter to the bottom of the pan, then add one-quarter of the apples on top of the batter.
Repeat this process two more times with the remaining apples and cake batter, ending with a layer of cake batter.
