A delicious diabetic-friendly recipe that includes Rooibos tea!
  • 500 g sweet apples with the skin, cut into wedges
  • 100 ml strong Rooibos tea
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup (250 ml) buttermilk
  • 100 ml low-fat milk
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) finely grated lemon rind
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) ground almonds
  • 100 ml cake flour
  • ½ tsp (2,5 ml) baking powder
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) sugar (optional)
  • ½ tbsp (7,5 ml) ground mixed spice
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) icing sugar (optional) mixed with a pinch of ground mixed spice
  • 175 ml plain low-fat yoghurt
  1. Preheat oven to 200 ˚C. Place apples, tea and cinnamon stick in a saucepan. Simmer for 7-10 minutes or until just tender. Spoon apples and tea into a lightly greased oven dish.
  2. Beat buttermilk, milk, vanilla, eggs and lemon rind together. Stir in almonds, flour, baking powder, sugar (optional) and mixed spice to form a runny batter. Pour over the apples.
  3. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked.
Serve immediately with a light dusting of the icing sugar (optional) and 2 tbsp (30 ml) plain low-fat yoghurt per person.
This recipe works just as well with ripe pears.
