This makes a delicious healthy treat if you’re feeling a bit deprived of comfort foods. Believe it or not it’s dairy-free, grain-free, nut-free and sugar-free (apart from the cherries’ natural fruit sugar). I have used a baking version of natural sweetener, which combines stevia and erythritol, so you still get the sweetness without the bitterness of 100% stevia; I used the Natvia brand of baking mix.
You can use blueberries, blackberries or other berries if you prefer them to cherries.
Serves 6 INGREDIENTS: ½ cup tapioca flour ½ cup coconut flour pinch Himalayan pink salt 1 ½ tsp baking powder ¼ cup Natvia Baking mix 5 dessertspoons coconut oil, melted 5 tbsp water 1 ½ cups frozen cherries Coconut cream to serve (optional)
METHOD: ⦁ Preheat the oven to 180 deg C. ⦁ Grease a glass dish (or other) of roughly about 20 cm x 15 cm. ⦁ Line the bottom of the dish with the cherries. ⦁ In a large bowl, mix in the dry ingredients. ⦁ Add remaining wet ingredients and mix through. The mixture will appear quite dry. ⦁ Bake for around 30 mins until cake starts to brown on the top.
