https://kidgredients.com.au/brown-sugar-apple-slice-a-kid-favourite-for-afternoon-tea/I bought frozen cherries. They were meant to be raspberries. But I was under pressure. I had to be back for school pickup by 3:25. There were red things on the packet and the went in the trolley. Much later when I tried to make raspberry yoghurt for Miss 5 I noticed the mistake. So I’ve got these frozen cherries burning a hole in my freezer space. This is the second attempt at a recipe for them The first resulted in a slice the texture of crumbly sandstone and disdain. But I’ve cracked it with this one. Cherry crumble slice.
It’s good. So good there won’t be much of it going in the freezer, if any. And so good I may have to buy more frozen cherries. And Mr Kidgredients who doesn’t normally like cherries ate a piece, so I’m calling that a success.
Now before anyone gets cranky- there is sugar in this recipe. It is coconut sugar but it’s still sugar. I’m not going to apologise for that fact because I am too busy enjoying it! You can make this healthier by subbing half of the flour in the base for wholemeal as I have done in this slice. This is however a treat, a small blip of fun and yum in a normally really healthy diet for my kids. It’s still homemade and I know what all the ingredients in it are, so it’s much better for them than store bought treats anyway.
