Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease a 9-inch springform pan.
Add oil, vanilla and eggs to a large bowl. Whisk until blended. Add sugar and whisk well.
Mix flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl. Slowly add dry ingredients to oil mixture, whisking until mostly mixed.
Cut 2 of the apples into ½-inch pieces and stir into cake batter. Cut the remaining 2 apples in half. Cut each half into thin wedges, keeping the wedges together.
Spread the batter in prepared pan (it will be thick.) Arrange the wedges on top of the batter.
Bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 60 to 70 minutes.
Let cake cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edge, then remove springform edge. Transfer cake to a serving platter and cool completely.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
