Apple Cinnamon Cake – Moist and spongy cake with gooey apple chunks in between , flavored with aromatic cinnamon.
This is an eggless cake with yogurt. Yogurt makes this cake extra moist and light. One can eat pieces and pieces of it and still would want more.
I had some low fat Amul Fresh Cream at home. So, I added some icing sugar, a pinch of salt, a few drops of vanilla essence and cinnamon powder to fresh cream and whipped it. I refrigerated it for sometime and then, poured it over cake pieces. Delicious cinnamon flavored cream added to its flavor. If you do not have fresh cream, sprinkle some cinnamon and powdered sugar over it before serving.
Apple Cinnamon cake can be served as dessert / tea-time cake.
