  1. Place sultanas and currants, spices and water into a small size saucepan, bring to boil, simmer for 3 minutes.
  2. Pour into a mixing bowl then add margarine. Combine until margarine has melted.
  3. Blend the apple sauce and bicarb into mix and combine. Leave to cool.
    Preheat oven 180°C fan forced.
  4. Once fruit mixture has cooled, beat egg whites into fruit mixture well.
  5. Gently fold both sifted flours into mixture in one go, treat as a sponge, DO NOT BEAT as this will make the loaf tough. The less the mixture is moved, the lighter the loaf will be.
  6. Pour mixture into a small loaf tin that has been coated with cooking spray and bake approximately 35 minutes or until cooked in centre. Leave to rest for a few minutes then turn onto a wire rack to cool.

NOTE: Use remaining apple puree in another recipe or freeze for later use.

Suitable to be frozen


Dietitian's tip

What a fantastic snack. The sugar is natural sugar coming from the sultanas and currants. These are high in antioxidants particularly phenols that help prevent cancer and heart disease.
