As a child, I remember there was a fabulous yoghurt slice you could buy at the local health food shop. I have looked everywhere for something that resembles my memory. No luck I am afraid.
This however is my version of a yoghurt apple cake inspired by some posts I saw when I went searching. I have to say it is fabulous.
It is great way to use up leftover yoghurt and any stray apple you may have.
I love how this cake will satisfy anybody regardless of whether they like yoghurt or not. Better still you can serve it as a dessert at the last minute.
