Vanilla yoghurt & fruit slice
« on: October 16, 2020, 06:20:08 am »
This is a recipe I saw yesterday in an email from Best Recipes (link below). Converted to TM which turned out so well that I had to share.  ;D

https://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipes/vanilla-yoghurt-fruit-slices-recipe/sgaqll3i?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=ABR

VANILLA YOGHURT & FRUIT SLICE - makes 16 squares
200g raw sugar
2 large eggs
50g vegetable oil (used grapeseed)
15g baking powder
300g plain flour
200g vanilla yoghurt (used home-made Greek + Ĺ tsp vanilla bean paste mixed together)
125g milk (used reduced fat)
8g vanilla sugar
*425g can pitted cherries drained (used Coles black pitted cherries)
*700g jar apricot halves, drained  (used Goulburn Valley in juice)
Icing sugar and extra vanilla sugar to dust

*Drain the fruit in 2 separate sieves (or one after the other, starting with apricots) to stop cherries bleeding into the apricots.

Preheat oven to 160C. Grease a 30 x 20 x 5cm baking tin with cake release and set aside. Was recommended doing this instead of using baking paper.

Place sugar into TM bowl.  Mill 4 secs/speed 10.  Leave in bowl.
Add eggs. Mix 2 mins/speed 4, MC off.  Scrape around the bowl.
Add rest of ingredients except the fruit.  Mix 6 secs/speed 3.  Scrape down bowl and under blades.  Donít over-mix.

Pour the mixture into the baking tin and place the apricots all over the top.  Fill in with the cherries.   
Bake approx 45 mins or until a skewer comes out clean. Mine was just starting to pull away from the sides of the tin at the 45 mark. 

Remove from the oven and cool in the tin for about 5 mins then place a wire rack on top and carefully up-turn the tin so the slice lands on the rack face down.  Place another rack on the top then flip over again so the top is now showing again.   Leave until completely cooled. Dust with icing sugar and cut into 16 squares.
 
Lovely on its own or pipe a little whipped cream on top and serve.

This looks lovely JulieO. We have our car club AGM on Sunday and I need to take a plate. I think this may be it. Thank you.

Thanks girls.  It was really nice.  Not too sweet.  Would probably go really well with custard too. 

Perfect for what you are planning Cookie.  :D

Just realised the size of these photos are larger than I usually post.  Is it interfering with anyone's viewing on your ipad etc?  If so please comment and I'll reduce the size, no probs  :D
