Spiced apple and yoghurt slice

Spiced apple and yoghurt slice



12 serves


3 large

Caster sugar

¼ cup

Lemon rind, finely grated

1 teaspoon

 Plain flour

1 ⅔ cups

Baking powder

2 teaspoons

Cinnamon, ground

1 teaspoon

Milk (reduced fat)

⅔ cup

Cream cheese (reduced fat)


Vanilla or honey yoghurt (reduced fat)


Apples, skin on, cored and sliced

2 large



  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat 2 of the eggs, sugar and lemon rind in a large bowl until thick and pale. 
  3. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl.
  4. Fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, alternating with milk until well combined.
  5. Pour the mixture into a 25cm x 18cm slice tin, lined with baking paper.
  6. Mix together the cream cheese, yoghurt and remaining egg in a small bowl until smooth. Pour mixture over the slice and gently spread it with a spatula to make a ‘swirl’ pattern.
  7. Press the apples into the topping and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden and cooked through. 
  8. Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning onto a rack to cool completely. Cut into 12 (or more) squares to serve.



  • This slice can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Try serving warm with low fat yoghurt and sprinkled with grated lemon rind.
