Step 1

Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced.

Step 2

Grease and line an 8 or 9 inch round cake tin with baking or parchment paper.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar and add chopped apple and stir briefly to combine.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, add eggs, vanilla, oil and yoghurt and whisk briefly just to break up the egg yolks.

Step 5

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and gently mix with a wooden spoon until combined – but be careful not to over mix and then spoon batter into prepared tin.

Step 6

To make cinnamon topping, combine cinnamon, sugar and butter and mix together until lumpy and wet and sprinkle over cake batter.

Step 7

Bake cake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean and then transfer cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 8

To make the glaze, mix together sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk and stir until smooth and if the glaze is too thick, add an extra tablespoon of milk and drizzle glaze all over the cake.

Step 9

NOTE - if you cannot get baking soda (I know I can't) use 1 to 2 teaspoons of baking powder for each 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
