Generously grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan or nonstick Bundt cake pan (about 14 cup volume).

Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract and vanilla yogurt. Beating on low speed of mixer, beat in flour mixture just until blended. Spoon about 3 cups of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the streusel mixture and the apples, then 1/2 cup of the streusel mixture. Spoon remaining batter over streusel apple layer. Top with remaining streusel. Press streusel down into batter lightly. Bake cake at 350° for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Hold a baking sheet over top of cake and carefully invert. Remove tube pan or bundt pan; cool completely. Move to a serving plate, if desired.

Great cake with a few mods, Member Doc_Stewart

First off, I'm at almost 7000 ft., so mods are in order for most things. I increased the cinnamon to 1 Tablespoon (that's 50% more when you think about it). I substituted sour cream for the yogurt (just because I like sour cream), added 12oz of apple juice to the batter, and increased the number of apples to 5 (I used red delicious). I used a 9x13 pan and increased the baking time by 50%. It was fabulous: lasted about 45 minutes in my pastry case. I will definitely be adding this to our regular rotation of goodies.
