I came up with this recipe while trying to use up some apples and yogurt that I had lots of. I transformed my favorite pumpkin cake recipe into this. I have had people say that it is the best apple cake that they have ever had, and i agree! It is so moist! Everyone that trys it wants the recipe. I hope that you like it as much as we do!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oh this is a wonderful cake ... there are so many layers of flavor in it! And the crunchy sugar butter topping - well that just makes the cake. It smells amazing while it bakes too. A welcome addition to your next potluck.

Ingredients

WET INGREDIENTS

1 c
vegetable oil
2 c
sugar
2 c
plain yogurt
4
eggs
2 c
peeled and finely chopped apple
1 tsp
vanilla extract

DRY INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 c
king arthur gluten free baking flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking soda
2 tsp
cinnamon
pinch
nutmeg
pinch
allspice, ground

TOPPING

1 stick
butter
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp
cinnamon

GLAZE/FROSTING

1/2 c
half and half or heavy cream
1 Tbsp
maple extract
1 1/2 c
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350* and lightly grease 13in by 9in pan.
2
Mix all wet ingredients together.
3
Mix all dry ingredients together.
4
Mix wet and dry ingredient mixes together and pour into pre-greased pan. Pan will seem really full but I have never had it overflow.
5
Bake in preheated oven for 45min-1hour till middle is not jiggly any more and a toothpick comes out kinda clean.
6
Melt butter for topping and mix in sugars and cinnamon. spread on top of cake for the last 15-20 minutes of baking, just after the cake is firm enough to spread it on, this should make a nice crispy top.
7
If the sugar topping is not all melted and bubbly by the time the cake is done some times I turn on the broiler for just a few minutes, just till topping is bubbly.
8
Glaze- mix cream, sugar and maple ex. together till smoth. you can add less or more cream for your desired consistency. I like mine just thin enough for a slow thik pouring consistency,
9
I like to serve it almost strait out of the oven when it is still very warm and it melts the glaze and vanilla icecream. I serve the glaze on the side so it does not make the topping soggy. Enjoy!
