Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Apple Cake

  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped apple
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9 inch pan. In a small bowl stir together flour, baking soda, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and yogurt with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Add the splash of apple juice.
  3. Blend in the flour mixture, then stir in the apples. Spread the mixture evenly into the pan.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven. When done the cake should spring back when lightly poked.

Cream Cheese Topping
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all ingredients and then beat until smooth. Gently frost the cooled cake and then refrigerate.


  1. How much is a splash? Seriously. LIke a shotglass, or a teaspoon? What with the peeling and chopping, it's too much work to ruin it by over or under-splashing:)

  2. Uh . . . . 2 tablespoons. Yeah, yeah. That sounds right. And it's soooooooooo good. :)
