For the cake:

  • Butter for greasing
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 honey crisp apples, peeled cored and diced

For the crumble topping:

  • 1 ½ cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted


  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside
  • In another bowl, combine walnuts, both sugars, salt, cinnamon, and melted butter and stir until combined and the walnuts are coated. Set aside
  • In a large bowl cream the softened butter and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy (3 minutes)
  • Mix in eggs and vanilla until combined
  • Mix in yogurt until combined
  • Gently fold the flour mixture into the wet mixture using a spatula until just combined, making sure to not over mix (the batter will be quite thick). Fold the chopped apples into the batter until just combined
  • Spread half of the batter into a greased and parchment-lined 9x13 inch baking pan
  • Sprinkle half of the crumble mixture evenly overtop
  • Spread the remaining batter over top and top with the remaining crumble
  • Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cooling for 30 minutes prior to slicing and serving.
