  • Type O (2 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Dessert
  • 4 cups frozen red or black currants, or other tinned fruit as appropriate to taste and type
  • 4 cups carob powder (that's two packets the way I purchase them)
  • 1 cup millet flour
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 2 Tablespoons good oil
  • 1/2 cup agave syrup
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 eggs
  • pinch salt
How to make it:
  1. Prepare a very large loaf pan with two layers of bake paper to make sure that all sides are protected.
  2. Plan to heat oven to 150 degrees.
  3. Mix all together, being careful not to add the eggs to the frozen fruit in the first instance as they will curdle.
  4. Cover pan with a tight layer of alfoil and cook for 2 hours in middle of oven, then leave to cool down with heat turned off for another 2 or 3 hours.
  5. When totally cool, invert and slice for future use. I pack them in plastic containers, and they last in the fridge for several weeks.
  6. Best not to slice whilst still warm as it can break easily.
  7. If you prefer to cook in two smaller cake pans, you can reduce the cooking time to 1 and a half hours, but it is best to rotate the pans half way.
