may be made 3 days in advance
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 cups plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
2 cups all-purpose flour
5 large eggs
1 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 apples (McIntosh, Gala, Fuji, Golden Delicious)
1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
Spray oil, for greasing pan
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan with spray oil.
- In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon with 3 tablespoons of the sugar. Sprinkle on the bottom of the prepared pan.
- In a large bowl, beat the flour, remaining 2 cups of sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla with a stand or hand-held electric mixer on medium-high speed or by hand until well mixed. Peel and core the apples, halve them and then cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place the slices on top of the cinnamon and sugar in the pan in 3 long rows of overlapping slices. Pour the batter over the apples and spread evenly.
- Bake for 1 hour, or until the top is browned and a skewer inserted comes out clean. Let cool for 30 minutes and then turn over onto a large serving platter or tray. Serve at room temperature. Just before serving, sift the confectioners’ sugar over the top. The sugar will seep into the apples and heighten the taste.
