Sprinkled Apple and Cinnamon Cake

Ingredients:

For the cake:

• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 2 large eggs
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
• 2 medium-sized apples, peeled, cored, and chopped into small pieces

     For the topping:

• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Set this dry mixture aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a hand mixer or a stand mixer.
4. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then, stir in the vanilla extract.
5. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream or Greek yogurt. Mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
6. Gently fold in the chopped apples into the batter, ensuring they are evenly distributed.
7. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, spreading it evenly.
8. In a small bowl, mix together the 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon for the topping. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the top of the cake batter.
9. Place the cake pan in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
10. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
11. You can optionally dust the cooled cake with powdered sugar or make a simple glaze with powdered sugar and a little milk for added sweetness.
12. Slice the cake and serve. Enjoy your delicious Sprinkled Apple and Cinnamon Cake!

This cake is perfect for dessert or as a sweet treat with a cup of coffee or tea.
