Oh, the fond memories I have of my mom's Jewish apple cake recipe. This dense yet moist cake is layered with scrumptious fall apples, then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and baked to perfection.

3 c flour
2 c granulated sugar
3 tsp baking powder
4 large eggs
1 c neutral oil
1/4 c orange juice
2-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Vegetable shortening and extra flour for greasing pan

Latkes are just plain delicious. If you have never eaten them I encourage you to give them a try. I love latkes. I am absolutely full of affection for them.
