I got this recipe from a French girl named Annelise back in Edinburgh. We were working as part-time floor executives then.. (cleaner) and she brought this cake for our tea break. It is a very simple recipe and after 12 years, I found this in one of the boxes when I was cleaning up. Never made it before so I decided to try it to serve for the breaking of fast. However, I did not make it but my little girl, Iman did. We made a little adjustments though by adding sliced apple on the top as a garnish. It turned out perfect!
NOTE: Use the yoghurt pot as your measuring cup.
1 pot yoghurt
2 pots sugar
2.5 pots flour
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 pot oil
a dash of salt
1 green apple
2 tbsp Demerara sugar
- Sift the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
- Beat the yogurt and sugar until creamy.
- Add in eggs.
- Put in the flour and mix them together. Add the oil and mix it well.
- Pour the mixture into the baking tin.
- Bake at 180 degree Celsius until the cake is ready. (My oven took me 1 hr)
- Cut the apple in half and slice both parts. Thinly or not, it is up to you.
- Add the sugar to the apples and mix them well.
- Arrange the sliced apples in your baking tin. This will become the top part of the cake.
