In a large bowl mix together the yoghurt, flour, suger, eggs, oil, grated lemon rind, yeast and four of the apples, peeled and chopped finely. Grease and flour a cake tin and put the remaining sliced apples in the bottom: Sprinkle with lemon juice and sugar.
 
Pour the mixture on top and put in the oven to cook at 180C for thirthy minutes. Sprinkle the surface with icing sugar before serving if liked. This flan is delicious just slightly warm but it can also be eaten hot with vanilla ice cream, or cold with hot custard.
 
Bramleys are the best apples for this recipe, otherwise use a juice and slightly sharp apple which bakes well. Domenico Romoli's recipe was for, "Pie with pears and apples beneath".
