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!

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. The Test Kitchen

How to Make The Best Apple yogurt cake ever! and its Gluten Free!!

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!
