  • Beat yogurt, white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth.

  • Combine flour, flax seed, cinnamon, salt, cloves, and nutmeg together in a separate bowl. Stir yogurt mixture into flour mixture just until batter is combined; fold in apples. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 70 to 75 minutes. Turn cake onto a serving plate.

  • Melt butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and milk together in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and cool until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour sauce over cake.

Cook's Note:

All-purpose flour can be used in place of gluten-free flour blend if desired.

Made this a little different and texture was amazing! Added 1/4 cup Crema used 3 apples and cup of applesauce. Opted for Agave instead for brown sugar. And and sprinkle or more of ginger. Yummy. Next time going to chop apples in larger pieces. Read More

This did not work at all. Followed the directions exactly and it was a weird gelatinous texture. Do not recommend. Read More

I followed the recipe as is and when the cake is complete I think it weighs around 6 pounds. The taste is like apple pie but the density of the cake makes the texture more like a fruit cake. I did not care for the texture. Tried to heat and add ice cream or sugar-free cool whip - still a no go for the family. Read More
