A scrumptious, moist cake recipe made lower in fat by replacing some of the fat with orange juice concentrate. Great for potlucks or family gatherings.


  • Vegetable oil spray
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, white
  • 3 cups unbleached flour, white
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup orange juice, frozen concentrate, thawed
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups chopped apples, (Granny Smith, Jonagold, or Yellow Delicious), peeled


  • Preheat oven to 350F (175C).
  • Prepare 10-inch (25cm) bundt or tube-type pan with vegetable oil spray.
  • Beat eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer until frothy. Add sugar and beat well. In a small bowl, mix dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt). Add dry ingredients to egg mixture; blend well. Add in orange juice concentrate, oil and vanilla; mix together. Batter will be thick. Fold apples into batter until blended. Pour into prepared bundt pan.
  • Bake for one hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the cake’s center comes out clean.
  • Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Carefully remove cake from pan. Allow cake to cool before serving.
