  1. Preheat oven to 350F / 175C. Lightly spray an 11 x 7 x 2-inch baking pan with vegetable oil spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the applesauce, milk, yogurt, oil, egg whites and almond extract.

  3. In a medium bowl, stir together all the remaining ingredients except the silvered almonds. Stir the flour mixture into the applesauce mixture until just combined. Spread the batter in the baking pan. Sprinkle with silvered almonds.

  4. Bake for 35 to 38 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan on a cooling rack.

Cooking Tips, Kitchen Tips and Fun Facts

This healthy dessert has a wonderfully nutty taste, with ground almonds in the dry ingredients, almond extract in the batter and silvered almonds on the top. Truly a blast for almond-lovers.

Tips: For baking, whole wheat pastry flour is preferable to regular whole wheat flour because the pastry flour is finer in texture and produces a tenderer finished product.
