Apple Bundt Cake

Once upon a time, in the far, far away exotic land known as Oklahoma, the Young Heiress enjoyed eating a delightful concoction known as apple cake. It was mildly spiced with cinnamon and filled with succulent layers of sliced apples. The Queen Mother had searched far and wide for the perfect combination of yellow cake and crispy tart apples to please the Young Heiress. Yep, it's a mostly true story. This is the actual recipe for apple cake I enjoyed as a kid. It's also true that for a period of time, one of my nicknames was "the young heiress." It's a weird story and probably has nothing to do with what you would expect. Unless you were there or made privy to the details. I shall leave that story out for today. Ingredients for the cake batter 3 cups AP flour 3 teaspoons baking powder 2 cups sugar 1 cup vegetable oil 4 eggs 1/3 cup orange juice 2 teaspoons vanilla extract for the apple layers 3 tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced 2 teaspoons
