Apple-Cinnamon Cake

As the boys watched football I got restless and decided to make a cake. This is based on an almond apple cake that I made last year and wasn’t crazy about. I left out the almonds and added a good dose of cinnamon and homemade rum vanilla extract, and I think we finally have a winner!

Apple-Cinnamon Cake

Apple-Cinnamon Cake

  • 3-4 apples, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a combination of varieties)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 9 inch springform pan.
  • Combine the apple slices, 1/4 cup sugar, and cinnamon. Stir to coat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Add yogurt, butter and vanilla extract. Stir wet ingredients into the flour mixture just until combined.
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan. Arrange apple slices over the batter, reserving the syrup that has collected in the bowl. Pour the reserved syrup evenly over the top.
  • Bake for about 1 hour or until cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

      I wonder if this would work with slices of Italian Plums? I think I might have to give it a try – looks wonderful.
