This is an easy, fat-free, low carbohydrate dessert. You can vary the fruit, depending on what is in season, but remember the calorie and carbohydrate content will change.

Berries have the lowest carbohydrate count of all fruits and contain lots of goodness as well.

It is best eaten on the day it is made. No problem there!

Equipment needed: 1 x 8″ (20cm) flan tin

 

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Spray an 8" flan tin with Cake Release Spray or grease with butter and place a disk of baking parchment in the center of the tin to prevent the cake sticking.

2
Done

Sieve the flour and baking powder together and set aside.

3
Done

Beat the eggs and sugar with an electric or hand mixer, until the mixture is very thick and pale.

4
Done

Carefully fold in the sieved flour and the vanilla extract. It’s important to get the flour mixed through with the minimum of mixing. Overmixing will cause the cake to be flat. I find a large perforated spoon works well for this.

5
Done

Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes until the sponge starts to come away from the sides of the tin and the top springs back when pressed and the top is lightly brown. Because there is no fat in this cake it will become dry if it is overbaked, so ensure that it is removed from the oven as soon as it is baked.

6
Done

While the cake is baking make the jelly by pouring 10 fluid ounces (284 ml) of boiling water into a measuring jug.

Add the full packet of jelly and stir well until dissolved.

Add the liquor is using. Allow to cool. Set aside until the jelly is just starting to set.

7
Done

Remove the cake from the oven and leave in the tin for 5 minutes, before turning out onto a wire cooling rack.

Allow to cool fully before assembling.

8
Done

Arrange the fruit in the center of the flan.

Spoon the jelly over the fruit and place in the fridge until serving.

Best eaten on the day it is baked. If you need to bake it the day before store the undecorated base in an airtight container or wrap it in cling film.
