Yes, another apple cake recipe.. I love this one more than my previous one 🙂
This recipe is my mum’s favourite. Before I married, I used to make this frequently at home. It only came second to a moist carrot cake : )
This cake is full of hidden goodies; yogurt, nuts and apples. It is also made without butter which makes it great for those looking for a healthier option. I actually prefer the taste of oil in cakes over butter.
You will need:
1 cup castor sugar
3/4 cup oil
1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Sprinkle of ground all spice (optional)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Vanilla flavouring (approx 2 tablesoons vanilla sugar)
1 large granny smith apple- peeled, cored and chopped into approx 1.5-2 cm pieces
Sliced almonds for garnish (about a handful)
Whisk all wet ingredients with the sugar until creamy. Add flour and spices/flavouring. Fold in well with a spatula. Add the apples and mix in well.
Place in a lined and greased cake tin, sprinkle with almonds and bake for about 50-60 mins in a preheated 180 deg oven on the middle shelf, or until cooked through.
