Fresh Apple Cake Recipe
~ With a Twist ~

A simple, fresh apple cake recipe that's very moist and heavy with apples.

Serve apple cake for dessert with coffee or as a snack.

Makes 1 Bundt cake or 2 loaves


  • 4 large tart apples, such as Granny Smith
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup plain yoghurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


Preheat oven to 350° F (177° C). Core, peel and slice the apples; place them in a small bowl and sprinkle with the vanilla. In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, 1 cup sugar and eggs; beat well. In another small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and soda. Stir this mixture into the egg mixture.

Butter and flour a 10-inch (25cm) Bundt pan or two 8x4-inch (20x10-cm) loaf pans. Spread a thin layer of batter in the pan(s), then a layer of apple. Repeat and then top with a final (third) layer of batter. (You now have 3 layers of batter alternating with 2 layers of apple.) Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar over the top. Bake for about 50 minutes to 1 hour.
