Apple and Raspberry cake

A little bit flat, but I cooked this in a flan case.

Ingredients (approx amounts)

8oz self raising flour

4oz butter/ margarine

two tablespoonfuls sweetener (or 4oz sugar)

three eggs

two tablespoons milk

pinch of salt

large cooking apple peeled and cored

packet of raspberries.

I put the self raising flour in a bowl and then put bits of butter in plus the sweetener, then with a metal spoon I broke the fat up more, a pinch of salt, then crumbled the mix between my fingers so that it looked like breadcrumbs.

I made a dip in the mix and added the eggs, slowly stirring it in and trying to keep air in the batter, I added a bit of semi-skimmed milk to soften it more.

I added the apple slices and the raspberries to the cake batter so the fruit was evenly mixed into it. Then I poured the batter into the flan case which I had buttered.

I put the cake in an oven, gas mark 4, for 1 hour and 10 to 15 minutes.

It came out nice and moist, and it wasn’t completely cooled when we tore into it!

Note I used self raising flour that contains wheat, milk and eggs that can be allergens, butter which may not be in your diet and sweetener that you can cook with because I try to make sugar free cakes.

Made my own Tiramisu.

I decided I wanted to make my own Tiramisu with no sugar.

Ingredients :

5 or 6 tablespoon fuels amaretto liqueur,

1 small tub of mascapone cheese,

1 teaspoon of granulated sweetener – the sort you can cook with (sucralose type)

1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon of coffee powder.

Layered on top of bananas ( per person)

Method :

Chop the bananas into slices and put in bowls.  

Put mascapone cheese in a seperate bowl, add 4 or 5 tablespoonfulls of amaretto liqueur. Drizzle half a tablespoon of it onto each bowl of bananas.

Stir the liqueur into the cheese then sprinkle the sweetener, the cocoa and the coffee into the mix. Stir in together.

Sprinkle a little cocoa over the bananas and place half the mascapone mix on each portion of bananas.

Sprinkle a little cocoa on top.

Serve

Hope this is OK, it’s totally made up, but I hope if you make it you enjoy it.
