Expert Tips

You can use 3 (6-oz) containers of Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free harvest peach or French vanilla yogurt instead of the yogurt in the recipe if you like.

The apple needs a split personality: peel the half that will be stirred into the batter; leave the peel on the remaining half for a more colorful topping.
