  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup non fat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups honeycrisp apples peeled, cored, and finely chopped

Crumb Topping

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter unsalted and softened

Powdered Sugar Glaze

  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare nonstick mini loaf pans with Pam.


  • Sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt and vanilla. Set aside.
  • Using your stand mixer, beat together butter and sugar until creamy. Add both eggs until well incorporated.
  • Alternating, add flour mixture, and yogurt mixture until just combined.
  • Hand mix in finely chopped and peeled apples.
  • Pour batter into prepared mini loaf pans.

Crumb Topping

  • Using a fork, mash together sugar, flour, cinnamon, and softened butter until big clumps form.
  • Sprinkle over each cake and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out mostly clean.
  • Remove from oven and let set for 5 minutes, then remove each cake from the pan and finish the cooling process on a wire rack.

Powdered Sugar Glaze

  • In a small bowl, stir together butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Let stand for a minute or two to slightly thicken and drizzle generously over warm apple cake. Eat immediately.
