Apple, Yogurt and Olive Oil Cake

It all started with that yogurt cake. As far as I can remember, this was what got me into cooking. My first experiences in the kitchen. When I was little, I had that book I loved reading, and at the end of it, they gave the recipe for this yogurt cake. I made it tons of times, for birthday parties or simply when my brothers and I fancied eating a cake. I liked adding small variations to the original recipe, like chocolate chunks or apples. It was so easy to make as a child because you use a yogurt pot to measure all the ingredients.

This time, I decided to use olive oil instead of sunflower oil and it gave the cake a lovely flavour. Here, trees are still covered with apples, and when you live in a county like Devon, this is a fruit you find plenty of.
