This super moist and yummy Apple cake is very easy to make and so delicious. It’s packed with fresh apples and a touch of caramel, light, and perfectly sweet. This recipe has become a staple at our home and I make it very often. It goes so well with yogurt or a cup of tea, or coffee. If you like Apple cake, this is the recipe to try, it’s simply the BEST!
This cake is simply addictive. Once you make it, it’s hard not to make it again and again. And why not? it hits all the checkmarks for the perfect Apple cake: easy and quick to make, perfect texture and flavor, and everyone loves it. What else can you ask for?
When I want a cake, but I want it fast and easy, I always go for this recipe. It’s no-fuss, perfect every time cake that I love. Apples are available pretty much all year round, so this is a plus, but it is also great with pears if you want to try that too. The caramel sauce I add on top is totally optional, but if you have it give it a try, after all… it’s caramel we are talking about, can’t go wrong with that.
How to make this Apple cake?
Note: For exact measurements and directions see the recipe card below!
Making the batter is pretty easy. No special tools, just a couple of bowls, a whisk, and a baking dish. First, I chop the apples. I take the skin off, but if you prefer you can leave it on (some types of apples have thicker skin than others).
For the batter, I combine the flour with the spices. In a separate bowl, I whisk the yogurt, oil, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Then to the wet mixture, I add the flour with the spices and gently mix. Before the flour has been fully incorporated I add the chopped apples and finish mixing.
I line a springform with parchment paper and transfer the batter to the dish spreading evenly. If I’m using caramel I add a few dollops of it on top of the batter, with a toothpick I make swirls around the top. I bake it on the middle rack at 350F(180C) for about 35 minutes, or till a toothpick comes out clean. Let it sit a bit before removing the springform and transferring it to a cooling rack.
If you have any leftover, you can store it covered at room temperature for up to 3 days. I haven’t tried freezing it, I assume it will be fine, but when I try I will confirm. I really hope you’ll give this recipe a try. It’s a truly delicious easy Apple cake, that you can make again and again.
