For the Apple Filling and Topping:
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
5 tablespoons sugar
5 to 6 cups sliced apples
For the cake:
2 cups sugar
1 cup applesauce
4 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup orange juice
4 eggs OR 1-cup liquid egg substitute, lightly beaten
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Grease a 12-cup tube or bundt pan with Pam. Combine cinnamon and sugar and set aside 1-tablespoon. Toss prepared apples with remainder and set aside.
For the cake, whisk together sugar, applesauce, vanilla, orange juice, salt, and eggs. Combine flour, baking powder, and nutmeg and fold into sugar mixture. Spoon a little more than one-third of the batter into prepared pan. Cover with half of apple mixture, then spoon in remaining batter and apple slices. Sprinkle top lightly with the reserved cinnamon-sugar.
