Apple and yogurt cake

The apple and yogurt pie is a very simple recipe to make and also quite quick. Plus, it's a dessert with no butter and no oil in the ingredients, and with only 2 eggs, it's also pretty light. Despite this, you will get a moist and soft dessert, absolutely perfect for proposing a healthy and tasty snack, together with a nice cup of tea, or, especially if accompanied by a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream, just to make it even more delicious, a perfect after dinner for your guests ;-) I preferred not to add aromas, just a little bit; of brown sugar to enhance the flavor of the apples, but if you prefer you can add a pinch of cinnamon to make its scent even more intoxicating ;-) Procedure How to make the apple and yogurt cake First of all peel and clean the apples and cut 2 into cubes and 1 into thin slices, then sprinkle both, in separate cups, with the lemon juice and set aside.
