This is a traybake, so quick and easy, an all-in-one that is soft, moist and fluffy. It contains no butter but I have used olive oil instead.
You will need:
2 cups yogurt
1 1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
Grated rind of an orange
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3 apples, thinly sliced with skin on, soaked in the juice of the orange.
Extra cinnamon to sprinkle on top pre-baking.
1 tablespoon warmed up honey for garnish
Heat the oven to 160°C. Grease large rectangular sheet tray with oil, and line the bottom with baking paper.
Whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until frothy and consistent. Add the sifted flour, baking powder, baking soda, orange rind and spices into the liquid mixture and stir with a metal spoon. Do not over mix.
Pour the batter into the cake pan. Top with apple slices neatly arranged. Lightly sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 45 minutes. Cover with foil at the end if the surface is browning. Before it cools down, brush lightly with honey.
Serve the cake warm or at room temperature. When well-wrapped, this keeps very well for several days.
