Preheat the oven to 425°F.

In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, flour, vanilla, and remaining 1 teaspoon sugar until smooth. Thoroughly whisk in the egg substitute.

Lightly spray a heavy 10-inch ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Pour in the oil, swirling to coat the bottom. Heat over medium-high heat. Cook the apples for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to medium. Stir in the reserved sugar mixture. Cook for 30 seconds, or until the sugar is melted, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat. Spread the apples evenly. Pour the batter over the apples.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the frittata is golden and slightly puffed.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and remaining ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.

Cut the frittata into 4 wedges. Serve topped with the yogurt mixture.
