A tea-time classic.

One serving contains 0.8g of your daily requirement of 1.5-3g of plant stanols.

Method

  1. Lightly grease the tin with a little of the Benecol® Buttery Spread and base line with baking parchment. Place dried fruit in a large bowl and pour over the tea. Cover with cling film and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Remove the cling film, stir in the Benecol® Buttery Spread and the apple.
  2. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180ºC/fan oven 160ºC. Beat in the eggs and sugar and sift over the flour and spice. Mix well and spoon into the prepared tin. Bake for an hour to 1 hour 15 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve sliced with Benecol® Light Spread. You can store it in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Tip:
You can use various combinations of dried fruit, so long as the total weight is 200g - chopped, figs, prunes and dates all work well.
