Ingredients

Cake

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 cup plain 0% Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour I use half whole wheat, fluffed and scooped
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Granny Smith apples

Streusel

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9" Springform pan. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine oil and brown sugar with a whisk until combined. Add yogurt, eggs and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
  • Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir just until moistened. Stir in apples and spread into prepared pan.
  • To make the streusel, stir together butter, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon until a crumbly dough forms. Sprinkle over top the cake batter (see notes above for how to get nice, big clusters!).
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. If the top is browning too quickly, simply cover with a piece of tin foil for the remaining bake time.
  • Cake can be stored at room temperature for up to 24 hours, or in the refrigerator up to 5 days. It also freezes perfectly, up to 3 months.
