3. Reduce speed on low and add in the oil and vanilla. Mix till just incorporated.
4. Add in the yoghurt and lemon juice and mix till just blended and no white streaks remain.
5. Lightly, fold in the grated apple.
6. Spread half batter onto the pan, smoothen, and sprinkle the Streusel on the batter evenly, then with a knife, dip halfway into the batter and give it a swirl. Cover the Streusel with the remaining batter.
7. Bake the cake in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Note :
This cake is not thick, only 3/4 inch in height, for greater height, double the recipe.
Another variation of this recipe is to substitute the yoghurt with sour cream but omit the lemon juice.
