Beat oil and eggs with an electric mixer in a medium bowl until creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat well. In another bowl combine baking mix, zest, salt and ground cinnamon. Slowly add this mixture to the egg mixture and mix until combined. The batter will be thick. Fold in the apples by hand using a wooden spoon. Spread batter into the prepared pan.
