Apple Yogurt Cake - serves 6-8

 
 
Ingredients:
 
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
1 large apple, peeled and thinly sliced

Topping:

3 tbs. brown sugar
3 tbs. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup oats
3 tbs. flour
3 tbs. butter, diced fine (cold)

Process all topping ingredients until fine crumbs.  Add 1/4 cup of pecans (optional).  If you don't have a processor (like me) just use your fingers or a fork to blend.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter an 8 inch round cake pan, and line with parchment paper.

Mix together the eggs, sugar, yogurt, and applesauce until well blended with a whisk.  Add the dry ingredients and stir until just blended.  Pour into the prepared cake pan.  Top the batter with the thinly sliced apples, then with the crumb topping.

Bake for about 35 minutes, or until top springs back lightly when touched, or toothpick inserted in center comes clean.  Cool for about 15 minutes on a rack, then turn out onto a plate.  Enjoy!
