Apple Cake is very easy and quick to prepare! It is a light and soft cake although the recipe requires no butter!
Trust me, this cake will be a great success! I prepared it for several occasions and everybody asked me the recipe so…. here it is!
This cake is perfect in every moment of the day and it meets everybody’s flavor. It is neither too sweet nor too bitter: if you like more sweet cakes, I suggest you to increase the quantity of the sugar (50 g no more). I used a vanilla yoghurt, but you can use whatever flavor you want or prefer!
- 3 eggs at room temperature;
- 150 g of sugar;
- 150 ml of yoghurt;
- 300 g of flour;
- 16 g of baking powder;
- 1 lemon;
- 1 pinch of salt;
- 3 apples;
- icing sugar as needed.
Preparing the Apple Cake
Grease and flour two cake pans of 18 cm of diameter or a bigger one (about 26 cm of diameter).
Peel and cut 2 apples in cubes. Put them in a bowl with the lemon juice and stir the ingredients.
Sift the flour with the baking powder and the salt.
Preheat the oven to 180° C in static mode.
Beat the eggs with the sugar until a light and soft mixture is obtained.
Pour the yoghurt few at time. Add the sifted powders, few at time. Mix until a uniform mixture is obtained.
Add the apple cubes into the mixture and combine them.
Pour the mixture obtained into the cake pans. Slice the remaining apple and garnish the top of the cakes with these slices.
Bake the cakes for about 50 minutes. Check the cooking from time to time. After 40 minutes, check it using a skewer: if inserted into the cakes it comes out clean, the cakes are done, otherwise keep on baking.
Once done, turn the oven off and take the cakes out of it. Let it cool before sprinkling them with icing sugar.
