I have a lovely recipe for you today.
An apple cake made with natural yogurt which helps in keeping a moist consistency, and coconut flakes which show nicely in the middle of the cake when you come to slice it.
This is done by making layers with the pastry and the coconut in the middle and finishing off with apples on top.
It looks quite attractive, it is easy and most importantly it is seriously good!
- Prep Time : 20 minutes
- Cook Time : 40-45 minutes
Whip the egg yolks with 120 g of sugar, add the yogurt, the melted butter, the flour, the zest and juice of the lemon. Mix well.
Peel and cut the apples into thin slices then add 2/3 to the mixture, stir well. You need to get a smooth consistency but not too runny, add a little milk only if the mixture feels too dry.
Whip the egg whites to a firm consistency with the remaining sugar. Add the coconut and stir well.
Grease a round baking tray (about 20 cm diameter) or use a silicone one, put 3/4 of the dough on the mould then place the coconut mixture on it.
Put the remaining mixture on top
and finally the remaining apples. Cook for 40-45 minutes at 180C.
When the cake has cooled down you can sprinkle it with icing sugar if you like.
