4-5 apples, diced
5 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 c. sugar (I'd use a little less)
Add to eggs and sugar, stirring together:
1 c. vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. orange peel
3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
Add dry ingredients to sugar/egg/oil + mixture, alternating with 1/4 cup orange juice.
In greased and floured tube pan, layer batter, apples, batter apples, ending with apples on top. Bake at 350º for 70-90 minutes.
Note: Try not to let the apples/sugar go all the way to the edge of the pan - it makes it stick really badly and hard to get out of the pan.
I've seen this recipe for 8"x8" square pans or 9"x13" rectangle pans, so if you don't have a tube pan, you might be better to do the 9"x13" instead of loaf pans. I think it would make 3 loaves, if that's what you decide. Good luck!
For glaze: use excess juice from apples and put into saucepan. Add a couple of tablespoons of sugar and about a teaspoon of cornstarch (first dissolved in 1/4 cup water) and simmer this mixture until it thickens into glaze. Drizzle over top of cake. You could even add a bit more water to it before simmering to make it go a bit further.
