How to Make It

Add molasses and egg; beat well. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with yogurt, beginning and ending with flour mixture; beat well after each addition. Stir in dates and walnuts. Pour batter over apple slices.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan 5 minutes on a wire rack. Loosen cake from sides of pan, using a narrow metal spatula. Invert onto a cake plate; cut into wedges. Serve warm.

good, a bit too sweet

Used Greek yogurt & subbed butter for margarine, otherwise followed ingredient list.  Dusted the chopped dates with a bit of flour so they wouldn't clump together in the batter.  Good but too sweet, better with coffee.

Awesome! Uses ingredients that we typically have on hand, comes out of the pan easily and looks beautiful, tastes delicious. Will definitely make this again! A great fall dessert.
