Peel, core and thinly slice the apples.

In a small bowl whisk together the flour, cinnamon and salt.

In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the sugar and the melted butter until mixture is light and creamy.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating for a few minutes after each addition.

Fold in (reduce the speed of the hand mixer), the flour mixture, alternating a few times with the yogurt, until mixture is well combined.

Use a spatula to stir in the sliced apples and the lemon zest (optional).

Pour the cake batter into a buttered, 8" round baking pan (it does not have to be a "deep" pan, as this cake is not intended to rise much), and smooth the top with the spatula.

Sprinkle the 1/3 cup raw (or granulated) sugar on top.

Bake at 350° F for about 40 minutes or until the top of the cake is golden, and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Allow cake to cool in pan for about 5 - 10 minutes, and then turn onto a plate or a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve plain, or with a dollop of whipped cream or whipped dessert topping.

Serves 8.


This cake is so easy to make, and will keep well for several days (if it even lasts that long - at our home, it is gone the same day it is made), so... consider making a double batch of the batter and apples, and bake two apple cakes at one time.

You can also bake two cakes, use one fresh, and freeze one cake for a handy snack at a later date.

If you chose to freeze this apple cake, seal it with plastic wrap, and place it in an air-tight, freezer-safe container.
