RECIPE TIPS
MAKING IT DIFFERENT

Other fruit combos that work well in this batter include a small, chopped mango and the grated rind of a lime (omit the cinnamon); 100g/4oz blueberries and a small chopped ripe pear, or replace the fresh fruit with 100g/4oz ready-to eat dried fruit such as chopped apricot and sour cherries or cranberries. Replace the yogurt with a good scoop of vanilla ice-cream
