Cinnamon Apple Bundt Cake

For the Cake:
2 heaping cups of peeled apples, thinly sliced
3 T white sugar
2 T cinnamon
½ C vegetable oil
½ C applesauce
1 C white sugar
4 eggs
3 t vanilla
¼ C orange juice
1 ½ C white flour
1 ½ C wheat flour
1 T baking powder
1 t salt

For the Glaze:
¼ C butter
1/3 C orange juice
2/3 C sugar

Toss the apple slices in the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.

Beat the oil, applesauce, sugar, eggs, vanilla and orange juice until well incorporated. Add the flours, baking powder and salt.

Spoon about 1/3 of the batter in a well-greased bundt pan. Arrange the apple slices over the batter. Spoon the remaining batter over the apples.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 60 minutes. Check it after about 50 minutes.

To make the glaze: melt the butter, orange juice and sugar together and spoon over the cake. I started while the cake was still in the pan. Poke hole in the cake with a wooden skewer.  Then turned the cake out of the pan and continued spooning the glaze. I also used a pastry brush to apply the glaze.
