For the cake we will need the applesauce. To do this, bake in the oven or boil in a small amount of water 1 large Apple and puree it.
In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking powder.
Separate the yolks from the whites. Mix the egg yolks with yogurt and applesauce.
Add to dry ingredients, stir.
Beat the whites until stable peaks.
Gently add proteins to the rest of the ingredients.
Add chopped nuts and cherries (I had half a canned cherry and half a cherry jam). Stir. Cherry before you put in the cake, it is desirable to sprinkle with starch. I ran out of starch, I had to put it like that.
Put the dough in a greased with vegetable oil and floured form. Bake in a preheated 180 degree oven for about 50 minutes. For cupcake fit a small shape with a diameter of 20-22 cm.
