simple apple yogurt cake

I've never been the kind of person who had to polish off a bag of chips all at once, or who couldn't stop until they'd eaten the whole batch of cookies, but this cake was really, really hard for me to stop eating. It's so simple and so good, and you probably already have everything in your pantry, so it's perfect for cake-necessitating emergencies. Because I know you have these kinds of emergencies all the time, right?

This is a lightly spiced apple cake-- really, the apples are the star-- that was inspired by this post at La Tartine Gourmande.

Simplest Apple Yogurt Cake

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3/4 cups sugar
2/3 cups plain soy yogurt
1/3 cup oil
2 tbsp apple sauce
1/4 cup apple juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
2 tbsp raisins
1 tbsp boiling water
1 tbsp rum

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease an 8" or 9" springform pan. Put the raisins in a small bowl, and add the boiling water and rum

Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. In another bowl mix the wet ingredients. Add the we ingredients to the dry and fold with a rubber spatula, until they are almost mixed, about 3 strokes. Add the apples and fold a few times to distribute the apples evenly.

Spread the thick, apple-filled batter in the prepared pan. Sprinkle the soaked raisins on the top of the cake, and bake for 40 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out without clumps of raw batter on it.

just made this, subbing peach slices for the raisins (out of raisins! who runs out of raisins?) — it is delicious and as a bonus, my house smells amaaaaazing. thanks for sharing the recipe.

I saw this about three weeks ago and I saved this recipe for my Spring Break cooking spree. I baked it up last night, and it was so worth the wait. The cake is kind of a pudding cake and is mushy and so perfectly stuffed with apples. I had some trouble with the dough, and I also have been a bit scatterbrained lately (meaning I forgot to get about half the ingredients!), and so I had to change the recipe slightly. I used a mushed banana for the oil, a mushed apple for the applesauce, and orange juice for the apple juice. I also accidentally picked up maple yogurt instead of plain, so I cut down on the sugar. When I mixed all of my ingredients the dough was really thick (probably because of all of my changes) and I added another 1/3 of yogurt and a splash of orange juice. My mother was a little doubtful of how it would turn out after all of my improvising, but it was truly gorgeous! The house smelled so scrumptious, and it tasted so good that I had trouble making myself wrap it up and put it away so that I would have leftovers for tonight! Thank you for posting such a lovely recipe and putting up such a tempting picture of the cake. It was the picture that seduced me, and I am so glad that it did!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

I baked this cake yesterday. But as I wanted a somewhat "healthier" cake, I used 1 cup of the AP flour and 1/2 cup oat flakes, raw brown sugar, 2 1/2 apples and brandy (was short on rum). It turned out delicious. I will use maple sirup or agave instead of the sugar next time, as well as 1 cup oats and reduce the AP flour to just 1/2 cup.
Thank you for this easy and quick recipe!
