Rita this is a delicious cake. I followed your directions though I don't have a tube pan so I used a nut-loaf pan and an ordinary 8" pan. I took a third of the batter and mixed in some of the apples and poured into the nut-loaf pan. For the plain pan I spread half of the remaining batter in , layered most of the apples on top, spread with the rest of the batter and then topped with the remaining apples. The nut-loaf tin was ready in 35 minutes and the other in 1 hour.....both turned out beautifully. Love the cardamom in the cake - it really complements the cinnamon and apple. This is a versatile cake - it could be morning/afternoon tea or it could be dessert. Delicious.
