This was deliciously moist, with a great juicy apple taste.

120g butter   cream Grease a 22cm pan with removable bottom. Spread in
(1) half the batter,
(2) apples,
(3) half the raisins mixture,
(4) remaining batter;
(5) lightly press on the remaining raisins mixture.
Bake 40–45 minutes in moderately hot oven or until cake springs back lightly when touched. Cool in pan on a wire rack about 30 minutes. Loosen edges and remove cake from pan.
220g sugar   gradually add; beat until light and fluffy
2 eggs   add one at a time, beating well after each
1 teaspoon vanilla extract   stir in
250g flour sift together   add flour mixture alternately with yoghurt, beginning and ending with flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
245g plain full-fat yoghurt room temperature
75g raisins mix well
65g chopped walnuts
112g sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 medium apples peel, slice
In cakes, standard proportions are equal weights fat, sugar, and flour. Here the yoghurt is making up part of the fat (in addition to activating the bicarbonate of soda), so be sure to use full-fat. Also, perhaps it could do with less sugar?
