2 cups granulated sugar
1-1/2 cups canola oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 teaspoon of freshly grated orange zest
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine-grained kosher salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups apples, peeled and finely chopped (about 3 medium apples)
1 cup shredded coconut (I prefer to slightly brown mine in a dry skillet beforehand)
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray the bundt pan with baking oil, and set aside.
In a large bowl, with a hand mixer combine the sugar, eggs, oil, orange juice, flour, baking soda, kosher salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract; and mix until combined. With a wooden spoon, fold in apples, coconut, and raisins into batter. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

so it absorbs into cake...
Tip: I like to serve this wonderful cake with french vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream. You can also make this cake using alternate dried fruits, mixed nuts, and so on.
