A semi-light cake to celebrate my birthday. A good tip is to soak the apple slices first in some apple cider vinegar to give this cake a fruity freshness.
Ingredients for 10-12 persons
125g sugar| 50g honey | 185g butter| 4 medium eggs | 250g selfraising flour | pinch of salt | 150g Greek yogurt | 1 tsp vanilla-essence | 3 medium sweet apples | 125g cherries, unpitted and halved | 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar | ground cinnamon | 100g mixed nuts, chopped
→ Preheat the oven tot 180°C. Peel the apples and cut into slices. Soak these apple slices in the vinegar. Set aside. Grease a baking pan (∅24cm) with butter and cover it with some of the chopped nuts. Mix with a hand mixer in a large mixing bowl the sugar, honey and butter soft. Mix in the eggs, one for one. Add the flour and salt and mix on medium speed. Pour the yogurt and vanilla to the batter and mix again. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and push one third of the cherries into the batter. Put the sliced and soaked apple slices on top of the cake and end with the other cherries in the middle of it. Bake the cake for 60 minutes. Remove from the oven. Take it out of the baking tin and let cool down on a rack. Sprinkle the remaining chopped nuts over the cake and serve.
