Toss apples with cinnamon and 5 tablespoons sugar; set aside.
Mix remaining ingredients together; blend well. Pour 1/3 of the batter into a greased and floured 10" tube pan (like a bundt cake pan); layer with half of the apples. Repeat layers and pour remaining batter on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the center removes clean.
Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes; invert tube pan and remove to cool completely.
