– 2 cups gluten-free flour blend– 1 teaspoon baking powder– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda– 1/2 teaspoon salt– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened– 1 cup brown sugar, packed– 2 large egg– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract– 1/2 cup Greek yogurt– 2 cups peeled and diced apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
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.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. This can be done with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 2-3 minutes.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the Greek yogurt. Mix until just combined. Gently fold in the diced apples.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
