“I have made this recipe so often my family think I can't cook anything else, but with lots of home grown fruit around, it is the easiest gluten free dessert that I have found. Fruit: Almost any type of fruit can be used. I have tried apple, pear, fig, nectarine, peach, mango, berries, ... eg For apple sponge: peel 1 Kg apples, chop, bring to boil, pour sponge mix over. If using canned fruit, then use around 750 grams can for best results. (If there is a lot of juice in the can then remove some before bringing the fruit to the boil) It can be cooked in a variety of ways: Microwave for 12 minutes on medium until cooked. OR place in saucepan on stovetop over minimum heat for 20 minutes until cooked. NOTE: the sponge will be gluggy if the fruit is not boiling when the sponge mix is poured over it. Serve with icecream or custard and or cream.”
