Dairy-free fruit sponge

You know we are all about those fruit-derived antioxidants, so here is a way to enhance your intake that will also warm your heart on a chilly evening and make you love your life.

We used a small 2-3 person pie dish, but you can scale appropriately.

This is a dairy and egg-free fruit sponge recipe although it is also possible to swap out the coconut oil for butter if that is what you prefer! 



For the Filling:

1 large apple

1 cup of fresh or frozen berries


For the Topping:

1/4 cup melted coconut oil (or other bland tasting oil)

1/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup flour (we used rice flour to make a gluten-free version)

1 mashed banana

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1/4 tsp salt



Pre-heat your oven to 180C

Peel and core the apple, cut into cubes and stew in a little water until soft

Put the apples and berries in the bottom of your pie dish

Melt the coconut oil (or butter) and cream it with the sugar in a warmed bowl

Add the mashed banana and combine thoroughly

Add the other ingredients and combine. The consistency is dough-like.

Spread the topping over the fruit and bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden.

Optional: sprinkle with icing or caster sugar.


Enjoy on its own or with yogurt or cream.
