Cinnamon Apple Cake

The girls, dah besar ni, susah betul la nak paksa makan fruits. They only like tembikai. Buah apple yg aku beli hari tu, sampai 2 weeks tak bersentuh. So aku decided to bake it. Of course, the first thing that came to mind was apple pie. Tapi malas nya nak buat the pastry. 

Lepas berminit2 cari recipe, I decided on this apple cake recipe. It turned out really good. I love it! 


1  1/2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 cup red apple, peeled and roughly chopped
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup Greek yogurt

Cinnamon topping (too lazy to make this)
50 grams (1/4 cup) caster sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Sugar glaze (I omitted this)
30 grams (1/4 cup) icing or powdered sugar
1–2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Grease and line an 8 or 9 inch round cake tin with baking or parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Add chopped apple and stir briefly to combine.

In a separate bowl, add eggs, vanilla, oil and yoghurt. Whisk briefly just to break up the egg yolks.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and gently mix with a wooden spoon until combined – but be careful not to over mix. Spoon batter into prepared tin.

To make cinnamon topping, combine cinnamon, sugar and butter. Mix together until lumpy and wet. Sprinkle over cake batter.

Bake cake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Transfer cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the glaze, mix together sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk. Stir until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add an extra tablespoon of milk. Drizzle glaze all over the cake.
