Apple, Peanut Butter and Yoghurt Cake

 Makes a 30cm cake. 

Peanut butter, apple, and yoghurt…you can’t go wrong with that combination! We made them into a beautiful apple upside-down cake, that makes for quite an Autumn showstopper.

although you can get apples all year round, it’s in full swing now (in Autumn), so why not pop them in a cake?! A little something different to that apple crumble.
