Easy Yogurt Apple Cake

Easy Yogurt Apple Cake

A foolproof, easy, oil-free cake that takes 10 minute to prepare.

Ingredients: 18 cm diameter round pan

about 250 g
2 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
●Lemon juice
1 teaspoon
2 handfuls
Plain flour
about 1 cup (80 - 90 g)
Baking powder
1 teaspoon


1. Put the raisins in the yogurt, stir, and let sit for a while.
2. Cut the apple into 1/8 wedges. Dice 2/3 of the apple, by cutting the wedges into 4-6 bite-size pieces. Slice the remaining 1/3 of the apple, drizzle lemon juice (not listed) and set aside.
3. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Brush the pan with melted butter (not listed). Put the ● ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
4. Add the diced apples into the bowl from Step 3 and mix. Add the sifted flour and baking powder, mix into the batter, and pour the batter into the baking pan.
5. Place the sliced apples evenly on top of the batter. Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes, reduce the temperature to 180°C and bake for 20- 30 minutes. (The cake is done when a bamboo skewer poked through the middle comes out clean.)
6. To add a glaze as in the photo on the right, dissolve 3 tablespoons of apricot jam into 1 tablespoon of water. The cake is delicious as-is but if you want to add the glaze, brush the surface immediately after baking.
