The Freshman Cook: Secret Recipe Club~Apple Cake!

This is my second post for The Secret Recipe Club! I am really enjoying the club, and I love getting to see all the different blogs and recipes out there. So much talent and creativity!!. This month I was assigned the blog called Simply.Food. It is a wonderful blog full of delightful recipes from a vegetarian kitchen. The recipe I chose is Apple Cake. I love apples in all types of recipes, and I thought it might be appropriate for the fall.
Apple Cake (This recipe was written in grams on the web site. I think I converted correctly) 2 cups Flour 1 teaspoon Baking Powder 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 1 teaspoon Cinnamon 1/2 cup Sugar 2 Granny Smith Apples 1 short cup of Milk( 7.337 oz) 2 tablespoons Plain Yogurt 5 1/2 ounces of Butter 2 Eggs Place the flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl and whisk together. Peel your apples.
Core your apples.
Grate your apples.
In a mixing bowl add sugar, eggs,
milk, and yogurt. Mix lightly.
Stir the grates apples into the egg mixture.
Gently fold the egg and apple mix into the flour mix. Be careful not to over mix. Spray your pan with pan spray and cover with flour.
You can put a parchment liner in the pan if you want.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Check with a skewer to make sure it is done. When the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool on a rack. When it first begins to cool, take a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the cake. Let cool for 15 minutes. Remove cake from pan.
Dust cake with powdered sugar.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Thank you to for providing this recipe. It was delicious! Thanks for joining me today for Secret Recipe Club! For information on joining the club check out
