Apple Walnut Cake / Bolo de Maçã e Nozes
In my home growing up nothing ever went to waste, so if we had extra apples my mom would bake this apple walnut cake for us. We would enjoy this delicious cake throughout the year, even though it also makes a perfect autumn cake to have and share with others!! Enjoy!!!

6–7 medium apples (I used Gala Apples, but you can use the apple of your choice)
Make sure to peel, core and cut apples into small bite size pieces.
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1 cup of chopped walnuts
2 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of butter, melted or 1 cup of vegetable oil
1 3/4 cups of granulated sugar
5 large eggs or 4 extra large
1/4 cup of orange juice
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a large tube or bunt pan and leave aside.
In a large bowl add the chopped apples and toss together with sugar, cinnamon and walnuts, making sure that all apples are covered with mixture, then set aside.
Add the flour, baking powder and salt in another large bowl. Mix well together and leave aside.
In a separate medium bowl mix together using a hand mixer the eggs, sugar, orange juice, butter and vanilla. Make sure this apple mixture is well incorporated.
Then create a well at the bottom of the large flour bowl and add all of the egg mixture. Mix everything together.
Pour half of the batter into the pan and then spread half of the apple mixture over it. Pour the remaining batter over the apples and then top with the remaining apple mixture.
