Spiced Harvest Cake

Haven’t tried this one out yet but my mom emailed it to me and it sounds yummy!

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter (3/4 stick) room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch chunks
1 ripe pear, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch chunks

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift together flour, baking powder, cardamom, cinnamon and salt and set aside. In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture and yogurt in two batches, mixing at low speed just until combined. Stir in apple and pear chunks. Pour into greased 10-inch cake pan and smooth the batter using a knife or offset spatula. Bake until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. Cool for five minutes in the pan, then invert onto a cooling rack.
