  • 3 cups - flour
  • 3 teaspoons - ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoons - baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons - salt
  • 1 cups - unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cups - vegetable oil
  • 2 cups - sugar
  • 2 teaspoons - vanilla extract
  • 3 - large eggs
  • 1 1/2 pounds - apples, 3 large, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoons - turbinado sugar, such as Sugar in the Raw
  • 1 cups - confectioners' sugar
  • 5 teaspoons - milk
  • Directions:

    Heat oven to 350° F. Grease a 10-inch tube pan, dust lightly with flour, and tap out excess; set aside.
    In a bowl whisk together flour, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, baking soda and salt; set aside.
    In an electric mixer cream together butter, oil, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Working in two batches, incorporate dry ingredients into butter mixture. Fold in apples.
    Spoon batter into the prepared pan. Combine remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon and turbinado sugar and sprinkle over cake. Bake until top is golden and a tester inserted into cake's highest point comes out clean, about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
    Allow cake to cool in pan for 15 minutes before transferring to a plate right side up; allow to cool completely. Whisk confectioners' sugar and milk together in a bowl to make icing and drizzle over cake.
