i found another recipe that asks for cinnamon rather than mixed spice but still not got no yoghurt. . would maybe half and half sour cream and milk do the trick? ?

jacqui248, IMO any one of the following would be suitable substitutes for the yoghurt... . .

buttermilk, soured milk (milk soured with 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar per 1 cup milk), sour cream, cottage cheese (blended until smooth). :-))

substitute your mixed spice with, nutmeg or ground cloves or just extra cinnamon.
like 245sam suggests re the yoghurt of if you have cream(you can sour it the same way as for milk) or use half cream half milk.
