1 tablespoon plus 3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large sweet apples, [Golden Delicious] [total 3/4 pound]
2 large eggs
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons fine grated lemon rind
1-1/2 cup flour
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Combine the lemon juice and water on low speed, mix half the flour mixture and half the lemon juice mixture alternately into the egg mixture; repeat with remaining flour and lemon juice mixtures.

Mix in walnuts on low speed.

Spoon 1/4 of the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Arrange 1/3 of apple slices on batter and sprinkle evenly with 1/3 of cinnamon mixture [about 1 heaping tsp.] Spoon another 1/4 of the batter in dollops over apples and spread very gently.

Repeat with 2 more layers of apples, cinnamon and batter, ending with another layer of batter; top layer of apples may not be completely covered.

This is a tried and true recipe that I make every year for Rosh Hashanah. It has both apples and honey, and is moist and delicious. Hope you enjoy it.
