What You'll Need

  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, cold, cut into small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt (16 ounces)
  • 3 medium apples, Golden Delicious or Granny Smith, peeled, cored, and diced

How to Make It

  • Generously grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan or nonstick Bundt cake pan. Heat the oven to 350° F (180° C/Gas 4).

  • In a medium bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups brown sugar, 3/4 cup flour, the cold butter pieces, and cinnamon. Mix with a fork until crumbly, and butter is blended in well. Stir in chopped pecans.

  • In a bowl, combine 3 2/4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda.

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract and vanilla yogurt.

  • With the mixer on low speed, beat in the dry ingredients just until blended.

  • Spoon about 3 cups of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the streusel mixture and the apples, then 1/2 cup of the streusel mixture.

  • Spoon remaining batter over streusel apple layer.

  • Top with remaining streusel. Press streusel down into batter lightly.

  • Bake cake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.

  • Cool for 5 minutes in the pan.

  • Hold a baking sheet over top of the cake and carefully invert. Remove tube pan or bundt pan; cool completely. Move to a serving plate, if desired.

  • Tips and Variations

  • Quick Vanilla Glaze - Combine 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar with 3 tablespoons of soft butter. Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 2 to 4 tablespoons of hot water, or enough to make a glaze that can be drizzled over the cake.
