Brown Sugar Apple Cake

I am not much of apple eater, its either i make it into fruit salad or turn it into cakes and bakes. This cake is made using 2 red apples  which i intend to turn into apple pie earlier on. Of course some say that the best baking apple is Granny Smith, the crisp and tart variety of apples abudantly found in many shops., however you can just go with whatever types of apples you have in hand. I have 2 big  Red Fuji apples and that is what i used in the cake and it works just fine. To add moisture  to the cake I incorporated  plain yogurt insteda of the usual milk but it all depends on your preferences.

Brown Sugar Apple Cake

Ingredients

2 apples, (1 peeled, cored, and sliced into thin slices & 1 peeled and chopped into bite-size)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
11/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
100g raisin
1cup caster sugar
250g butter, softened (Buttercup)
2 cups all-purpose flour,
3 large egg
1 container 135g plain Yogurt ( I used Nestle fat-Free)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1  teaspoons soda bicarbonate
1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
 
 
Preheat oven to 180 degress celcius.Line a 20 inch square pan with baking paper and butter all the sides.
Toss the  sliced apple apples with cinnamon and 1/4 cup brown sugar and arranged  them onto the bottom of the baking pan ( any which way that suits you)
 
 
Also tossed the chopped apples with some cinnanom powder and set aside.
Sift the flour with baking power and baking soda into  a bowl. In another bowl cream the butter with brown and castor sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one by one and continue to  beat. Add the vanilla extract.
Using wooden spoon fold in the   flour and yogurt alternately . Toss in the chopped apples and raisin. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top.
 
Bake for 45 minutes or until cake tests done. Let cake cool on a wire rack
 
The cake taste better if you keep it  to the next day
