Calories 390 kcal

Ingredients

  • 80 g butter
  • 150 g digestive biscuits
  • 200 g blackberry jam warmed
  • 200 g blackberries
  • clotted cream to serve

For the filling

  • 250 g butter softened
  • 100 g golden caster sugar plus extra for sprinkling
  • 5 eggs beaten
  • 250 g ground almonds
  • 2 tbsp self-raising flour

Instructions

  1. To make the base, melt the butter, then sizzle until it turns a nutty brown if you want some extra flavour. Blitz the biscuits into crumbs using a food processor, then add the melted butter and blend to mix. Press the crumbs into a lined 20cm square tin, then chill until set. 
  2. Make the filling by beating the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, tip in the flour and almonds and continue beating, then spoon into a piping bag.
  3. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Remove the tin from the fridge, then spread over the jam, leaving a gap around the edge. Pipe the filling mixture on top, making sure you start with the edge around the jam. Press in the blackberries, sprinkle over the caster sugar and bake for 45-50 mins. The frangipane should be cooked all the way through with a sugary crust on the top. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Can be made the day before and kept, wrapped, at room temperature. Bring to the picnic in the tin, then cut into squares and serve with a large spoonful of clotted cream.

Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Course Breakfast
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1
Calories 214 kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Organic frozen mixed berries
  • 1 small ripe banana sliced and frozen
  • 2-3 tbsp light coconut or almond milk
  • 1 scoop plain or vanilla protein powder optional*

Toppings

  • 1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut desiccated
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • granola (optional)
  • fruit (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add frozen berries and banana to a blender and blend on low until small bits remain - see photo.
  2. Add a bit of coconut or almond milk and protein powder (optional), and blend on low again, scraping down sides as needed, until the mixture reaches a soft serve consistency 
  3. Scoop into 1-2 serving bowls (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) and top with desired toppings (optional). I prefer chia seeds, hemp seeds, and coconut, but strawberries, granola, and a nut or seed butter would be great here, too!

  4. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep in the freezer for 1-2 weeks. Let thaw before enjoying.
