This recipe uses cheaper frozen fruit plus the last apple lurking in the fruit bowl. The result is moist and delicious, and very moreish.
225 g/8 oz. frozen forest fruits
3 tablespoons runny honey
180 g/2 cups porridge/rolled oats
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
130 g/9 tablespoons butter, plus extra for greasing
1 large eating apple, grated/shredded
15 x 15-cm/6 x 6-in. cake pan, greased and lined
MAKES 8 SLICES
Put the frozen forest fruits in a mixing bowl and drizzle over 1 tablespoon of the honey. In another bowl combine the oats, ginger and cinnamon.
In a saucepan melt the butter and remaining honey, then stir in the oat and spice mixture and the grated apple. Push the oat mixture into the base of the prepared cake pan. Give the forest fruits and honey a stir to break the fruit up a little, then spoon this over top of the oat layer and push it down with the back of the spoon.
Preheat the air-fryer to 180ºC/350ºF. Place the cake pan in the preheated air-fryer and cook for 12 minutes. Leave to cool to room temperature, then slice into 8 pieces.
