Apple Cake


Nothing much tops the smell of apples and cinnamon baking in something heavenly or simmering on the stove turning into applesauce. I had a bag of apples and instead of the usual apple crisp I decided to make an apple cake. I used my best white cake recipe which has cream cheese in it and then topped it with a cream cheese icing. This cake would also be good with a caramel sauce, caramel frosting or plain. If you do not want to use dairy in an apple cake, another option for a base cake to use with apples would be my Spice Cake:  The Spice Cake can be made dairy-free as well by exchanging the milk in the recipe and using all water.

This cake is very moist.

Apple Cake

Cream together:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 large pkg cream cheese softened-equal to 125 grams
  • 1 and 1/4 cup white sugar

Then add:

  • 1/2 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equivalent to 2 eggs)
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Mix well and in a separate bowl sift dry ingredients:

  • 2 and 2/3 cup flour
  • 4 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Gradually alternate the dry ingredients into the batter with:

  • 1 and 1/4 cup milk mixed with 1 tsp vinegar

Mix well. Then add:

2 and 1/2 cup chopped apples. Just mix to disperse apples.

Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 50-55 mins in a  tube pan or 40-45 minutes in a 9 by 13 pan.

    Instead of sour cream in a carrot cake can v use plain yoghurt? Pls clarify

    1. For the carrot cake you can either use 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup yogurt or you can just use 1 cup yogurt. I understand how that was a little confusing how I wrote that in the recipe. 🙂
