I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite chef/bakers- Dominique Ansel. I tweaked his Gâteau au Yaourt recipe slightly and added Granny Smith apples, which made for a cake that was dense, moist, and extremely satisfying.


  • 1 c greek yogurt
  • 2 c flour
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 c vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • (Optional) 2 granny smith apples, cubed


1. Preheat oven to 355 F
2. Spray your cake/loaf (I used loaf) pan with cooking spray
3. Combine all dry ingredients
4. Combine wet ingredients, and mix into dry until well combined
5. Stir uncooked apples into batter
6. Pour batter into prepared pan
7. Bake 30-35 min, until top is golden brown and tester toothpick comes out clean
8. Let cool for 5-10 min, then remove from pan and serve.
