Preheat oven to 200 ˚C. Place apples, tea and cinnamon stick in a saucepan. Simmer for 7-10 minutes or until just tender. Spoon apples and tea into a lightly greased oven dish.
Beat buttermilk, milk, vanilla, eggs and lemon rind together. Stir in almonds, flour, baking powder and mixed spice to form a batter and pour over the apples.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked.
Serve with a light dusting of the icing sugar and 2 tbsp (30 ml) of plain low-fat yoghurt per person.
This recipe works just as well with ripe pears.
