I love baking. But baking generally means cakes, pies and bread, which aren’t all that good for you. I live with 5 other people and work in a busy office, so if I do make something for fun I can always shift it, but half of the fun is in the eating, let’s be honest.
I found this recipe in the Evening Standard magazine last week, it’s by Rachel Khoo and is nice and summery. I like to think it’s more healthy than my signature Mars Bar Cheesecake because it has fruit in it, but the sugar probably doesn’t help!
Pinch of salt
50g ground almonds
2tbsp plain flour
100g creme fraiche
2 apricots, destoned and chopped
1 peach, destoned and chopped
- Preheat oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4, and butter and flour a 19/10cm baking dish or tin.
- Whisk the eggs with the sugar and salt until pale yellow and thick.
- Sift and fold in the ground almonds and flour.
- Stir in the creme fraiche and milk.
- Scatter the fruit into the prepared dish, spreading it out evenly.
- Pour the batter over the fruit and bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and set.
- Serve warm or cold.
