Berry and Apple Slice

  • Cooking oil spray, for greasing.
  • 150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
  • 90g (1/2 cup) rice flour
  • 55g (1/2 cup) almond meal
  • 80g (1/3 cup) caster sugar or 1/3 cup granulated sugar substitute
  • 250ml (1 cup) buttermilk
  • 2x50g eggs
  • 400g can no-added-sugar apple slices
  • 120g (1 cup) frozen raspberries

  1. Preheat oven to 170deg (fan-forced).  Grease an 18x28cm slab tin with cooking oil spray and line with baking paper, allowing paper to overhang sides.
  2. Put flours, almond meal and sugar in a large bowl and stir to combine.  Put buttermilk and eggs in a small bowl and whisk to combine.  Add buttermilk to flour mixture with apples and raspberries and mix to combine.
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared tin and smooth surface.  Bake for 40-45 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.  Cool in tin for 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Cut slice crossways into 7 pieces, then lengthways into 5 pieces.  Serve.
  5. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.  Or wrap in plastic wrap, put in resealable freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months.
  6. 1 piece=1 serve/exchange.
I got this recipe from the May/June issue of Diabetic Living magazine.  This is the recipe I promised in yesterdays post!!

This is easy and delicious and I love how I can have a couple of pieces guilt free!!  It does not last long at our house and is here to stay on my baking list after Jellybean arrives and I no longer have gestational diabetes!!

Linking up this rewritten post (long story best not to ask what happened!!) with Essentially Jess for ibot!!
