Homely Apple Pound Cake

A nice, easy and homely cake, perfect for this time of the year.
Especially if you are far from your hometown and if – for the first time ever – you are going to celebrate Christmas far from your mum. Your. Beloved. Crazy. Mum.
This is the apple cake I have grown up with. I have made it millions of time with my mum, leaking every single left-on-purpose-over drop from the mixing bowl…… what a lovely vignette in my mind.

At the end of the day, winter break holidays are all about this: thinking about the good old days and create “family usual practices” for your young kids, with that feeling of specialness which hopefully is going to stay for ever.
Kind of a melancholic post and a recipe to warm up my heart.

Apple Pound Cake


3 apples

200 gr caster sugar

3 medium eggs

100 gr butter

80 gr plain white yogurt

150 gr flour

50 gr potatoes flour

16 gr baking powder

powder sugar for dusting

Preheat the oven to 180°.

Butter and flour the cake mold, to make sure the cake is not going to stick to it.

Sift together the flour, the potatoes flour and the baking powder.

In a large bowl, mix together the butter and the yogurt.

Add the sugar and mix it until well combined.

Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

Add the dry ingredients (flour, potatoes flour and baking powder) to the egg mixture and stir until they are just incorporated.

Peel and slice a couple of apples. The third one just cut it in cubes.

Pour a little bit of batter into the mold, and place the apple slices vertically.

Now add the remaining apple cubes to the batter and pour all of it into the cake mold.

Bake it for around 40 minutes.

Once ready, let it to cool down and remove it from the mold before serving.

Dust with powder sugar.
