1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 c. sugar, divided
1 sliced tart apple or under-ripe mango
1/4 c. butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
1 c. yogurt

Grease and flour a 9-inch angel (tube) pan or a 9" x 13" baking pan. Preheat oven to 375F (190C). In a small bowl, mix the nuts (if using), cinnamon and 1/2 cup of the sugar and set aside. Pare and slice the apple (or mango) thinly. Beat together the butter and remaining sugar well. Add eggs and vanilla and blend. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, soda, and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternately with the yogurt. Beat until very smooth.

Spread the batter in the pan. Top with the sliced apple and the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake 35-40 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
