Dinie's Grandmother's Apple Cake

5 to 6 apples, pared, cored and sliced
1 tbs. cinnamon
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tbs. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 c. sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup orange juice
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. walnuts
3 tbs. honey

Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Dust apples with cinnamon; set aside. 

In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.  Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add oil, beaten eggs, orange juice and vanilla.  Combine for a smooth batter.

Spoon half the batter into the prepared pan.  Arrange half the sliced apples on top.  Sprinkle with half-cup of the walnuts and 2 tablespoons of the honey.  Cover with the remaining batter.  Top with the remaining apples and walnuts.  Drizzle the remaining honey on top.

Bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until the cake is golden and a tester comes out clean.
