Happy Hannukah!

Mazel Tov, dummies!
(30 Rock reference, has nothing to do with this blog, or the holiday. Just sounds funny.)

Tonight is the first night of Hannukah. Though this recipe isn't exactly traditional Jewish cooking, it's as close as we're gonna get.

A quick Google search on Jewish Apple Cake turned up that it has its own Wikipedia page. Kinda interesting, if you're into food history.

Jewish Apple Cake
 4 apples, pared and sliced
2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup oil
3 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
1/4 cup orange juice

-Pare and slice the apples. Mix with the cinnamon and 4 TB of the sugar. Set aside.
-Beat together remaining ingredients until smooth.
-Grease a 10" tube pan. Alternate layers of batter and apples 3 times.
-Bake 1hr 15 min at 350 degrees.
