Apple Yoghurt Cake

all you need now is a steaming mug of coffee and five peaceful minutes

Baking with coconut flour can be a minefield.

As anyone who uses it regularly will know, it’s a black hole of moisture – sucking up every last drop until you get a very dense cake.

The trick is to get your egg to flour ratio right or…as seen here…supplement with a lot of delicious ingredients that will up the moisture content.

it melts in your mouth, honest

Applesauce and yoghurt are the superstars in this recipe, creating a cake with a lovely soft, just-baked texture – even days after it comes out of the oven.

Don’t expect it to taste strongly of apples.

This is more a breakfast or afternoon tea (yes, that’s a real thing! Otherwise known as ‘first dinner’ in my house) kind of treat rather than a dessert.

If you want to sweeten it up to make it dessert worthy, I’d look into using a good frosting.

This is a cake that can handle anything you throw at it (not literally of course, this cake does not condone violence).

pretty good with whipped cream too (I’d imagine, I admit nothing!)

Apple Yoghurt Cake

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsps coconut palm sugar (if you don’t have this, I’d try subbing in honey)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  1. Whisk the eggs, coconut oil, sugar and yoghurt together until smooth.
  2. Sieve the coconut flour and baking soda into a large mixing bowl. Add the salt.
  3. Gradually stir the wet ingredients into the dry. Then stir in the applesauce until you get a semi-runny batter.
  4. Fold in the almonds.
  5. Spread into a 9in cake pan and bake at 375 for 30-35 mins ’til firm. Let cool before serving.
