When my mother visits anywhere, we need a tub of yogurt and fresh pineapples. No matter where she goes, she MUST eat these two things every day, for her health. BM, mainly..

I bought an expensive large tub of Fage ($10!!), and she hated it. It was too thick for her. When sons try to impress mothers, it always end up being wasteful. I should have just gotten the cheap shit.

So I was left with a lot of yogurt that I needed to use somehow. After a bunch of research for something interesting, I found one for an apple yogurt cake. Sounds interesting right?

This was also an easy as hell, fool-proof recipe. Yep, Yoko, I am talking to you.

24og flour
120g sugar
1tbsp baking powder
4 eggs
200g yogurt
2 apples cut into small pieces (I use Fuji apples)


Mix everything except for apples. Dump everything into a bowl, and mix together.  Since Greek yogurt has a lot less water, I added 1tbsp water.


Consistency is pretty thick.


Mix in apples.


I used a pound cake pan, but you can use regular round cake pan too.


Bake it on 350˚F oven for about an hour, until tooth pick comes out clean.


Airy and nice apple chunks.


Just the fact that there's fruit, and no butter/oil in the cake makes you think you can eat the whole loaf, right? This is amazingly moist and light. And the sweetness from the Fuji apples was definitely a hit-- I don't trust American apples.

  • Really? That’s so funny. I thought it was my mother’s weird habit. These Japanese ladies who can’t shit regularly must eat pineapple and yogurt every day, apparently.. You know how religious Japan could be?

  • My mother is just like yours. What is it with mothers and yoghurt/pineapple?! And everytime she calls me, she always asks whether I’m eating yoghurt/pineapple…
