Apple Yogurt Cake


Recipe from Alex Goh's book.
Normally we use green apples in our baking, but in this recipe I used red apples and very happy with the outcome.I like the moisture level in this cake.

Ingredients:
(A)  
250 gm butter
230 gm sugar ( I used 180gm)
 
(B)
5 eggs

(C)
120 ml yogurt ( I weigh 120 gm)

(D)
315 gm flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda

(E)
3 apples, peeled and cut into cubes
50 gm sultanas
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
Adequate water to boil the apples

Method:
Boil apples cubes in (E) till become soft, then add sultanas, drain the excess water.Mix in cinnamon powder, and mix evenly.Set aside.
Line 9 inch baking tin.
Cream (A) till light and fluffy.
Add (B) and cream till smooth and light.( Mine not very smooth, curdly, but I proceed to the next step )
Add in (C) ans (D) alternately , a little at a time and mix well blended.
Add the apples mixture into the batter. Mix till well incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared mould and arrange some apples on top.
Bake at 180C for 60 minutes, or test with skewer.It is ready when skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool.
Glaze with apricot glaze.( I used piping jelly )


Ready to bake....:)

I actually prefer red apples in cooking, pple use green because they like the tartness, but I find red apples also tart enough when cooked, plus then i can reduce the sugar because they're also sweeter!

this is delicious! looks so light and moist. I hate those fluffy dry sponge cakes, this looks just perfect(:
