My go-to recipe when a non-frosted, somewhat rustic but of course delicious cake is needed. I have a wonderful cake mold that looks like a circle of fir trees which I sprinkle with powdered sugar to make them look "snowy." But the cake works in any mold or spring form as long as it's well-greased. Sun Maid may be the source.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease (very well) a 10" springform pan with tube inset, or other similarly sized mold.
  2. Cream butter, sugar & orange peel until fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  4. Combine dry ingredients in one bowl & yogurt & apples in another.
  5. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with the yogurt/apple mixture.
  6. Stir in the raisins & nuts.
  7. Turn the batter into the prepared pan & bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Let stand for 10 minutes on a rack before turning out to cool.
  9. May be served with whipped cream & a garnish of sliced oranges but we like it simply sprinkled with powdered sugar.
