Apple and yogurt cake

This is a delicious cake ideal for breakfast or “merenda”.

It is very easy to prepare and it’s soft and creamy inside and crispy outside. I also serve this cake as a dessert with some vanilla ice cream.

Every moment is a good one for this cake and kids love it!

Ingredients: (Baking pan 24 to 28 cm)

  • 200 gr of flour “00”
  • 200 gr of sugar (I use brown sugar)
  • 3 Spoons of brown sugar
  • 8 gr vanillin
  • 16 gr of raising powder
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 100 gr melted butter
  • 200 ml of yogurt (I use the Muller vanilla yogurt)
  • 3 apples (as my kids love raisins sometimes I add 3 spoons of raisins to the sliced apples)
  • 1 lemon (only the juice)
  • a pinch of salt

Preheat the oven at 180° C (356°F)

Peel the apples and slice them in a bowl, add some lemon juice.

In a different bowl beat the eggs with the sugar (200 gr) until they are frothy. Add the melted butter, the yogurt and a pinch of salt. Mix well then add the raising powder, the vanillin, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Drain the apples and add them to the mixture. Mix carefully with a spoon.

At the end add the flour and mix well.

Grease and flour a baking pan and pour in the mixture. Then cover with a mix of 3 spoons of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Bake in preheated oven for about an hour (do the “toothpick test” for the cooking).

Make sure that apples don’t burn and if after 30/40 minutes they start to burn cover the cake with an aluminum foil. Don’t open the oven during the first 30 minutes or the raising f the cake will be compromised.

Buon Appetito!
