  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch tube cake pan with baking spray or butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the apple cubes with the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. In medium bowl, whisk the eggs lightly, then add the butter, applesauce, apple juice and vanilla. Mix to combine.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix while scraping down the sides of the bowl until combined.
  6. Pour half of the batter into the cake pan. Top with half of the apples. Pour the remaining batter over the apples and finish with the rest of the apples.
