6 apples, cored, pared, and sliced (about 3 cups)

5 tbsp sugar
5 tsp cinnamon
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup salad oil
4 eggs
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine sliced apples with the 5 tablespoons of sugar and the cinnamon. Set apples aside. Sift together flour, 2 cups sugar, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl. Make a well in center of flour and pour in the oil, eggs, juice, and vanilla. Beat till well blended. Drain the apple mixture of excess moisture. Spoon 1/3 of the batter into a greased 10-inch tube pan. Make a ring of 1/3 of the apple mixture on top of the batter, taking care not to have the apples touch the sides of the pan. Sprinkle 1/3 of nuts on top of the apples. Spoon another 1/3 of the batter on top of nuts and make another ring of apples and nuts. Top with remainder of batter, apples and nuts. Bake at 375 degrees for 1 1/4 hours or until done. Watch the top and if it is becoming too brown, cover lightly with aluminum foil. Cool cake to lukewarm before removing from pan.
