1 ⅓ cups vegetable oil
2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs

3 cups sifted flour (half whole wheat pastry flour and half unbleached white flour works well)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons apple juice, milk or water
3 cups chopped apples
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, or almonds)

2 tablespoons sesame seeds
Powdered sugar

Butter a 10-inch bundt pan, two 9-inch round cake pans, or one 9X13-inch sheet pan. Sprinkle the bottom and sides with the sesame seeds.

Preheat the oven to 350.

Beat the oil and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, leavenings, and spices. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture along with the apple juice and vanilla, beating with a wooden spoon until the batter is smooth. Fold in the chopped apples and nuts.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 30 to 45 minutes, depending upon the size of the pan, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Sprinkle the top with sifted powdered sugar when the cake is cool.
