This rustic apple cake has all the taste of organic apples in season. Be careful not to be seduced by the shiny, perfect apples, available in supermarkets. Demand the most for your health. Go in search of true fruit, maybe less attractive at first glance, but still juicy. The lightness of the greek yoghurt and mild EVOO give the dough a special texture. Wholemeal (whole-wheat) and almond flours, rich in nutrients, enhance the flavour of a timeless classic, which lends itself to many tasty but healthy variations.
