Apple Spice Cake

This is a super easy, mix and bake cake that fills the kitchen with the aroma of spiced apples. I have used freshly grated nutmeg, I think it makes a difference, the nutmeg is really punchy and smells divine. I adapted the recipe from here. I love that all you need is  bowl and a whisk and no fancy ingredients.
In a bowl mix together the oil, eggs, sugars, vanilla extract and apple sauce
Lightly whisk in greek yoghurt
Mix with a whisk to combine
Add flour, baking powder, bicarb, salt, cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg and gently fold in dry ingredients, do not over mix
Ta da, it smells just divine


1/4 cup rice bran oil

2 large eggs at room temperature

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup Greek yoghurt

1 cup apple sauce (I used Woolworths own brand)

1 3/4 cup white plain flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat oven to 175 C, grease and line a loaf tin

In a large bowl whisk together the oil, eggs, sugars, vanilla, Greek yoghurt, and apple sauce

Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg

Gently mix to combine, don't over mix

Pour batter into prepared tin

Bake for 45 - 60 minutes (ovens do vary) till cooked through

Let cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool

I served mine, spread with butter

So, tell me, what is your favourite mix and bake, cake recipe?
