‘A slice of this delicious sugar-free loaf makes a great healthy snack between meals, with plenty of prebiotic fibre. The apples keep the texture moist and the blackberries pack a punch of flavour.’- (Dr Sarah Schenker, dietitian).
- Makes 8-10 slices
- 250 g wholemeal spelt flour
- 175 g butter
- 1 tsp mixed spice
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 2 apples, peeled and grated
- 2 eggs
- 200 g blackberries
Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Butter and line the bottom of a loaf tin.
In a large bowl, rub the flour and butter together with your fingers to make fine crumbs. Gently stir in the mixed spice, baking powder and bicarbonate.
Whisk the eggs in a bowl and stir in the apples. Add to the flour mixture and lightly stir in being careful not to over mix.
Gently fold the berries with a metal spoon. Spoon into the tin and level off. Bake for 1¼ -1 hour 20 minutes.
Check with a skewer after 50 minutes and cover loosely with foil if it is browning too much.
