I am going to share with you a great Apple Swirl Cake recipe that my grandmother and mother have been making for as long as I can remember. It’s a delicious cake that we always eat for breakfast or even for dessert with some whipped cream.

I absolutely love baked apples: they’re sweet, tart and tender. My favorite part is their wonderful warming aroma that fills the house!2- Apple Swirl Cake | Brownie Box

The cake is spiced with cinnamon and swirled with chunks of sweet apples. It is also super moist: the addition of orange juice and yogurt to the batter gives the cake a wonderful texture. Can you believe that it gets better the second day? The spongy cake soaks the apple cinnamon juice to develop a deeper flavor.

    • Hi Kim! Thanks for the heads up, just add the yogurt along with the orange juice. I’ll adjust the text right now :)
      Let me know how the cake turns out!

    • Hello Stephanie,
      The yogurt makes the cake very moist, so it will probably turn out crumbly and dry if you omit this ingredient. You can substitute yogurt with buttermilk!

    • Hi Maria! You can use any kind of orange juice (I used fresh orange juice) and yogurt (such as Greek Yogurt) to make the cake soft and moist.

  1. Loved the cake and so did my family thank you for all the amazing recipes. Especially Sfouf. Just one thing I noticed is that in the steps of the apple swirl cake you don’t mention when to add the yoghurt. I noticed that cause I had already the yoghurt outside the fridge.
