These tasty squares contain no refined sugars so are a super healthy alternative to traditional cake. But you will hardly notice a difference! Soft, moist and spongy, it’s hard not to resist these treats.

Soft, moist and spongy, it’s hard not to resist these treats. However, if big chunks of fruit are a little ‘scary’ try chopping everything up a little finer.

You can change the fruit and flavours to suit the season or what you fancy. Take a look at some of the suggestions below.

For Gluten Free, try replacing the plain flour for a Gluten Free alternative. It will work just as well!

Ingredients:

  • 100 g apples, peeled and sliced
  • 225 g berries - I used frozen cherries
  • 100 g dried apricots, finely chopped
  • 225 g plain flour
  • 240 ml soya milk, or other alternatives
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Wilton Cake Release for greasing the tin

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 190C. Grease the tin with Wilton Easy Release.

Step 2

Preparing the Bater

  • In a large bowl blend together the apples, milk, eggs, zest, and oil. You can use either a hand blender, potato masher or put in a blender.
  • Fold in the flour and baking powder until just combined
  • Fold in the berries and apricots
  • Divide the mixture between the tin cavities

 

Step 3

Bake

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the muffins are well risen and an inserted cake tester comes out clean and the sides of the cakes pull away from the edge of the tin. They will not go as golden as a traditional cake, due to the lower sugar content.
  • Leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes, then carefully transfer to a cooling rack. 

Step 4

Flavour Variations
This recipe can be easily adapted to use the fruit that is in season or to tailor to the tastes that you prefer!

Berries - Any fresh or frozen fruit, such as pineapple, mango, banana...

Apricots - Any dried fruit, such as raisins, dried apple, prunes, figs…..you can also replace some of the quantity with nuts too.

Lemon Zest - Any flavouring of your choice, orange zest, cinnamon, Rose water, Wilton Treatology…

Apples - you can use the same quantity of stewed carrot, stewed parsnip and mashed banana

 

Why not try these flavours:

Pineapple, Mango and Orange Slices:

Substitute stewed carrots for the apple. Pineapple chunks for the berries, dried mango for the apricots and orange zest instead of lemon.

 

Banana, Cinnamon and Date Slices:

Substitute mashed banana for the stewed carrot. Diced banana for the berries, dates for the apricots and 2 tsps of ground cinnamon for the zest.
