Make the cake in the morning and cut in the evening. Chop the apples after the batter is mixed. After the cake is done, turn the tube upside down on an empty soda bottle until the cake is cool.

2⅓ cups sugar, divided
1 cup margarine
3 cups sifted flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
⅓ cup orange juice

In mixer, combine margarine and 2⅓ cups of sugar. Cream at medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to batter. Add juice and extracts. Combine until batter is smooth.
