  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp allspice

For the Glaze

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. Continue cooking until butter turns light golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, allspice, salt, and ginger.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together maple syrup, yogurt, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir in dry ingredients to wet ingredients just until combined. Stir in cooled brown butter until well combined. Gently stir in chopped apples.
  5. Spread batter into prepared baking dish. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until just starting to turn light golden brown and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
  7. Stir together all ingredients for glaze until smooth. Drizzle over the top of the cake. Allow glaze to set and serve.
  8. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
