Peel, core and chop the apples. You should have about 4 cups. Place in a large mixing bowl and stir in the sugar. Let stand for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to 350 F (180 C). Butter a 10-inch bundt pan and dust with flour. Set aside.
Melt the butter and let cool. Whisk together the butter, eggs and vanilla. Pour this into the apples and stir well.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Add to the apples and stir until evenly combined.
Spoon the batter into the prepared bundt pan and spread evenly. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Let the cake cool for 20 minutes in the pan before turning out onto a serving platter. Dust the cake with powdered sugar just before serving.
