Apple, Blueberry and Yoghurt Cake Slice

Apple, Blueberry and Yoghurt Cake Slice

This apple, blueberry and yoghurt slice is deliciously moist and bursting with apple and blueberry flavour in each bite. It is a simple one bowl hand mix that requires no fussing around and can be made by the little members of the family.

A great combination of fruit, dairy and fibre packed into each slice.  Perfect for the school or work lunchbox.

I have used fresh blueberries, however frozen are perfectly fine as well.  If you don’t like blueberries simply leave them out or swap them for strawberries of raspberries.  The apple can also be swapped with pear, it really is a versatile little slice recipe.


3/4 Cup Self Raising Flour
3/4 Cup Wholemeal Self Raising Flour
3/4 Cup Dessicated Coconut
1/2 Cup Raw Sugar
3/4 Cup Greek Yoghurt
1 Egg
100ml Olive Oil
1 Large Apple, diced
1/2 Cup Blueberries



1. Place all the ingredients except the apple and blueberries into a large bowl and mix until just combined.

2. Add the apple and blueberries and gently stir through.  Spoon into a lined 20cm x 20cm baking pan.  Place into a 180 degree Celsius oven and bake for 25 minutes or until lightly golden and it bounces back when touched.

Allow to cool before slicing into 16 squares.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.

Freezer friendly: Place portions into a freezer safe container or ziplock bags and freezer for up to 3 months.  When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and allow to defrost.

      So glad you enjoyed the slice.

    Hi Amanda, totally excited to make this recipe. Except I don’t have wholemeal flour or Greek yoghurt do you have any suggestion replacements on these items?

    • Amanda January 25, 2016 at 11:29 am #

      Hi Maddo, you can use all normal self raising flour. The Greek yoghurt can be replaced with sour cream or buttermilk. To make butter milk simply add 1 Tbs of white vinegar to milk and allow to sit for 5 minutes before adding,

    Hi, just wondering if you meant 2 sets of 3/4 cup self raising flour? 🙂


    • Amanda January 25, 2016 at 11:27 am #

      One is normal self raising and one is wholemeal self raising so yes two 3/4 cups of each type of flour,.

    Can you use normal vanilla yoghurt instead of greek yoghurt?

    • Amanda January 26, 2016 at 11:36 am #

      Yes you can. As it is sweeter than greek yoghurt you can reduce the added sugar a little to compensate.

    These are amazing, I’ve been making as 12 muffins and my mum thought they were cafe bought!
    Only using white flour and slowly reducing sugar to see what I can get away with.
    Just about to become a school mum so happy to have found these for lunch boxes.
    Thank you

    • Amanda February 1, 2016 at 11:12 am #

      Hi Alana, that’s fantastic. Thank you for popping by and letting me know.

    • Leanne June 2, 2017 at 3:10 pm #

      Did you use patty cases in the muffin tin?

  6. Emma February 1, 2016 at 3:11 pm #

    Is the mixture supposed to be quite dry and sticky? Can’t wait to try these. First time making them. Oh and I didn’t have coconut so I put almond meal in. Do you think it will work?

    • Amanda February 4, 2016 at 6:33 pm #

      Hi Emma, how did they turn out? I wouldn’t recommend replacing the coconut with almond meal as it will change the texture and flavour. That is why it would of seemed dry and sticky because the almond meal was swapped and it would of needed a bit more liquid to make it smooth.

  7. linda February 23, 2016 at 11:49 am #

    hi can you use vegetable or sunflower oil instead of olive oil and could you also substitute a different fruit for the blue berries

    • Amanda February 24, 2016 at 7:19 am #

      Hi Linda yes you can use the suggested oils. You can swap blueberries for another berry.

  8. Hells Bells February 24, 2016 at 9:03 am #

    I have mine in the oven as I write, can’t wait to taste !!!!

  9. Kelly June 22, 2016 at 11:18 am #

    Don’t be afraid to mix it up – I make mine with coconut sugar and mixed berries and hubby has claimed its the best slice ever – even over store bought so adapt to suit your family – great recipe Amanda ?

  10. Cat July 17, 2016 at 10:34 am #

    Could you use coconut oil or rice bran oil instead of the olive oil do you think?

    • Amanda July 19, 2016 at 7:26 am #

      You could use rice bran oil.

  11. Ashleigh August 23, 2016 at 3:07 pm #

    Could you use coconut oil as a substitute and also could you use almond milk instead of yoghurt
    Or rice malt syrup instea of sugar

    • Amanda August 27, 2016 at 10:58 am #

      Hi Ashleigh, sorry I don’t cook regularly with those ingredients so I’m not able to say yes or no.

      • Elaine January 17, 2017 at 6:21 am #

        I’ve made these with coconut oil instead of olive oil and think they taste even better ?

  12. Amy September 18, 2016 at 3:56 pm #

    So if I don’t have wholemeal self raising can I use 2x 3/4 cups normal self raising?
    Also which favour apples? I have pink lady or green smith at home.


    • Amanda September 18, 2016 at 6:45 pm #

      Yes you can. Any apple will work, I normally have granny smith apples in my fridge.

  13. Jo September 22, 2016 at 3:19 pm #

    House smells divine and the boys and I think this is seriously delicious.. Any other quick, easy and simple recipe to thank you for!

  14. Justine December 4, 2016 at 9:41 am #

    Thank you for the recipe. My kid s husband hates coconuts. Can I substitute that with something else please?

    • Amanda December 12, 2016 at 4:49 pm #

      You can simply omit or replace with some almond meal.

  15. Amy March 18, 2017 at 1:24 pm #

    Thank you for the recipe. I just made it and it is really tasty. Not too sweet with slight acidity from the fruits which goes really well with the coconut flavour. The crumb is soft. I substituted the olive oil with melted coconut oil. The batter turned out quite dry (unlike a cake batter) and needed to be gently pressed into the slice tin. This is a keeper recipe for us!

    • Amanda March 20, 2017 at 9:02 am #

      So glad to hear 🙂

  16. Sylvia May 2, 2017 at 9:22 pm #

    Delicious and so easy to make. Thank you!

    • Amanda May 8, 2017 at 10:44 am #

      Your welcome, I have a similar one Pear, Yoghurt and Vanilla coming on the blog today.

  17. kristy October 16, 2017 at 11:07 am #

    Absolutely delicious. Didnt have greek yogurt so used vanilla yogurt an cut sugar to 1/4 cup

    • Amanda October 23, 2017 at 11:17 am #

      That’s great to hear Kristy

  18. Jane July 12, 2018 at 2:30 pm #

    Can i use ordinary full fat milk instead of yogurt – and same quantity as the yogurt?

    • Amanda July 16, 2018 at 10:45 am #

      The yoghurt is what gives it it’s texture and taste. Changing to milk will make it a thinner batter and cake slice.
