A low-fat, moist cake using soya and rice flours. Nice served as a pudding with soya yoghurt.
6oz/200g./1 and a half cups of rice flour
2oz./50g/scant cup soya flour
4oz./125g./half cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon wheat free raising agent
2 large eating apples (peeled, cored and thinly sliced)
1 cup water
1/4 cup of apple juice
2 tablespoons of sunflower oil
a few drops of vanilla extract (optional)
brown granulated sugar for sprinkling on top
Mix the dry ingredients together then add the water, juice, oil, vanilla and mix well. Pour half the cake batter into a greased square cake tin (9×9 inches or 20×20 cm approx. works well). Spread the apple slices evenly over the batter and then top with the remaining mixture and sprinkle with the brown sugar. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 180c/360F for about 40 minutes or until firm.
