Description

This applesauce cake is perfectly moist, scented with cinnamon and brown sugar: and you mix the entire dough in the cake pan. It’s a baking recipe with no mixing bowls required!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (or homemade applesauce)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. Put the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into the baking pan. Use a fork to thoroughly mix the ingredients together.
  3. Use your hands to make a hole in the center of the dry ingredients. Into the hole, crack the egg and add the olive oil, yogurt, applesauce, and vanilla. Use a fork to mix the ingredients together until smooth and blended. Smooth the top of the batter with the side of a butter knife.
  4. Bake until the cake is fairly firm when you press lightly at its center and a toothpick inserted int the middle has no wet batter sticking to it, 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and leave on the counter to cool completely, 1 hour. Leave the cake in the pan. Dust with powdered sugar. Cut into pieces and use a small spatula to lift them from the pan.
