Apple Breakfast Cake

Yogurt is added to this recipe in place of some of the fat, which along with the chopped apples creates a really light and moist cake. As this cake is not too sweet, it is also perfect with a cappuccino for a mid-morning or afternoon coffee break. I used a fluted bundt pan for my cake, but a tube pan would work just fine. I prefer to use Granny Smith apples for baking as I love their tart flavor, but feel free to use your personal favorite baking apple in this recipe.

Why Healthy

  • Apples are are a good food source of vitamin C which is important for supporting a healthy immune system, forming collagen and enhancing iron absorption and rich in healthy carbohydrates needed for energy.
  • Yogurt replaces a good deal of the fat in this cake, reducing calories from fat and increasing nutritional value.
