Greek Yoghurt & Apple Cake

My first Fall cake had to have apples and a hint of cinammon, taste and scent that take my senses immediatelly to my favourite season. The recipe is quite simple and rustic, but the delicious flavor is absolutely exquisite. The adding of the Greek yoghurt brings moisture that keeps well without drying out and a fresh twist to a classic flavour. A delicious, seasonal coffee cake, perfect for an afternoon treat or any time of the day!


  • 1 Greek yogurt 
  • 2 cups flour 
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 100ml liquid butter
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 4 eggs 
  • 2 grated apples
  • 1 sliced apple to decorate + 1 slice of lemon + brown sugar

Beat eggs with sugar and cinnamon until you get a whitish foam. Add the flour, baking powder, yogurt and butter and beat again. Add the grated apple and wrap with a wooden spoon. Bake in preheated oven at 180°C in a mold greased with butter and sprinkled withflour for about3 5 minutes. Check the cooking with a toothpick.

  • 1 iogurte grego
  •  2 canecas de farinha
  • 1 caneca de açúcar
  • 100ml manteiga líquida
  • 1 c. de chá de canela
  • 1 c. de chá de fermento
  • 4 ovos
  • 2 maçãs raladas 
  • 1 maçã fatiada para decorar + 1 rodela de limão + açúcar mascavado

Bata os ovos com o açúcar e a canela até formar uma espuma esbranquiçada. Junte a farinha, o fermento, o iogurte e a manteiga e bata de novo.  Junte a maçã ralada e envolva com uma colher de pau. Leve ao forno pré-aquecido a 180ºC, numa forma previamente untada e polvilhada com farinha cerca de 35 minutos. Verifique a cozedura com um palito.

September Beauty Buys

I am totally in love with these products and I hope you'll enjoy them!

1. My hair type is  long, fine and straight which can be a bit problematic to untangle. I found that with the tangle teezer brush it takes less than half the time to get through my tangles because the tangle teezer glides through your hair without tugging it, causing a lot less damage, and therefore being much kinder to your hair than a regular brush. The bristles aren’t that long,but I found that the most effective way to use this brush was to section up my hair rather than trying to get the brush through all of it at once.I opted for the compact style version as it’s smaller than other models and fits perfectly into my handbag making for an amazing and super practical travel accessory. It was worth every single euro. This product has been the number one life-changer for me and I would never, ever want to be without. Thanks for the tip Sofia!

2. I was dying to get my hands on this sponge and I am so glad I did! I have been interested in this sponge since the very first day I saw it on one of the many youtube videos it is presented in. I just loved how it worked. I absolutely love the way my foundation looks when applied with it. It is better than using a brush in my opinion and it's also so much more fun! My foundation goes on beautifully! I'm not sure if its the material, the moisture, or a little of both, but I think my foundation not only looks smoother but lasts longer. I usually wash this sponge three times a week . Overall, I'm a fan! I highly recommed this product.

3. This is supposed to be a curling mascara and I am not sure whether it is the brush or the formula but it really is! This Benefit mascara has a nice, lightweight formula that keeps the curl in place, adding length without needing to use eyelash curlers. I can actually feel the brush going right into my roots and covering my lashes without clumping and it never smears or runs, never feels dried out. It's a really nice mascara that makes the lashes look amazing.This is my go-to high end mascara as of late. I have had so many compliments whilst wearing it!.

A beautiful and elegant office attire [regardless of your job], effortless, feminine and very polished is the combination of a classic buttondown with a skirt. It's a great transitional outfit to say goodbye to warmer days and still embrace the early cooler ones. It keeps you stylish in and after work and it certainly won't make you look boring at all. Add just a few statement accessories  - shoes, bag, jewellery, watch, lips, nails [it's all in the details] and be the sexy sophisticated woman who rules the world!
