1 c light brown sugar
1 c chopped apples
1 c sliced almonds, pecans or walnuts
1/4 c all purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tbsp butter, melted

2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 c orange juice

1/2 c confectioner's sugar
2 1/2 tsp orange juice
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 or 10 inch tube pan. Mix streusel ingredients and set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and mix well. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Turn mixer down to low, and alternately add flour and orange juice into mixture. Spoon half of the batter into the tube pan. Sprinkle with half of the streusel. Spoon remaining batter over streusel and spread to make an even layer. Swirl batter with a knife to make a marbled pattern. Bake for 15 minutes.

Remove cake from oven and sprinkle top with the remaining streusel. Return cake to the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.

Make the glaze by combining the confectioner's sugar and orange juice. Mix well. Turn cake out onto a serving plate and invert so that streusel is on top. Drizzle glaze over top of cake and sprinkle cinnamon over glaze. Enjoy!
