Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 apples, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large apple, peeled and sliced for topping
  • powdered sugar, for dusting

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F and grease a  9-inch spring form pan.
  • In a large bowl beat together the eggs and sugar until smooth and frothy.  Add the yogurt, oil and vanilla, mix well.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir until combined. Do not over mix. Stir in the cubed apples.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Top the cake with the remaining apple slices, placing them in a circular pattern.

  • Bake for 60 to 70 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack and let set about 10 minutes before removing the sides of the pan.  Cool completely and dust with powdered sugar before serving. 

Notes

  • The interior of this cake is very moist, this is quite normal.
  • I'm not a huge fan of cinnamon and have limited the amount to 1 tsp.  This can definitely be doubled if you prefer.
