Cinnamon Apple Bundt Cake

It's been quite a long time since I made a bundt cake.  I've seen quite a few bundt pans advertised lately so I thought it was time I dragged mine out from the back of the cupboard and made this Fall inspired cake.






Cinnamon Apple Bundt Cake

2 cups sugar
1 cup canola oil
4 eggs
1/3 cup apple juice 
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt

Mix together the sugar, oil, eggs, apple juice and vanilla.  Gradually stir in the dry ingredients.

Place 1/3 of the mixture in a greased and floured bundt pan.  

1 1/2 cups diced pared apples
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp flour
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix together in a small bowl.  Sprinkle one half of the mixture evenly over the cake batter in the pan.  Add another 1/3 of the batter, top with the remaining apples and then cover with the remaining batter.

Bake for 1 hour at 350°.  Allow to cool for 15 minutes before inverting the cake onto a plate.  Let cool an additional 45 minutes before icing.

Cinnamon Icing
