Fruity Yoghurt Cake
This is a lovely easy cake to mix up with just a large mixing bowl and wooden spoon, although it does take an hour to cook. Once the fruit and tin are prepared it takes 10 minutes to weigh out the rest of the ingredients and mix it up. I have made it a lot and never had anyone dislike it yet! The recipe which was given to me stated unsalted butter - but use whatever you have to hand. I like to top it with a cream cheese icing but it is just as good served with yoghurt or cream. I have assumed in this recipe that you will be adding apple but a wide range of fruits would do just as well - it is also good with rhubarb and ginger. The instructions look daunting as I have written them out singularly but if you read them through you will realise how easy this cake is - so please don't be put off by the way I have written everything out.

Instructions
  1. Preparation 10 mins. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Put butter on stove or into microwave to melt. Prepare a 20cm/8" round tin. Peel and core apples
  2. It only takes 10 mins to weigh out the ingredients and mix the cake:- combine fruit, flour and sugar in a large mixing bowl
  3. Crack eggs into a jug add the vanilla and whisk lightly with a fork
  4. Add eggs, yoghurt and melted butter to the flour mixture and stir until just combined
  5. Spoon into prepared tin. The mixture is quite stiff so you will need to go round the bowl with a scraper and push mixture into tin
  6. Bake for an hour, or once cake is lightly coloured and a skewer comes out clean from the centre of the cake
  7. Leave in tin for 15 minutes. Then turn out on wire rack to cool
  8. The cake can be served with either yoghurt or cream or even better still a topping can be spread on top.
  9. For a creamy topping you will need:- 100 ml double cream or plain yoghurt also works well, 50g cream cheese, 50g sieved icing sugar, ½ tsp vanilla essence
  10. Whip cream/yoghurt. Combine cheese, sugar and essence then stir in the whipped cream/yoghurt. Spread on the top of your cake
  11. To add some colour use either pieces of nut, sprinkles or glacé cherries arranged on top
