Low FODMAP and Gluten Free Recipe - Berry crumble traybake


For the berry filling

200g/7oz mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries)

50g/2oz caster sugar

2 tbsp cornflour

For the crumble topping

110g/4oz gluten free plain flour

70g/2½oz cold unsalted lactose free butter, cut into smallish cubes

30g/1oz caster sugar

For the cake

220g/8oz gluten free self raising flour

¾ tsp gluten free baking powder

½ tsp cinnamon

50g/2oz ground almonds

200g/7oz caster sugar

80g/3oz lactose free butter, melted

2 free-range eggs

40g/1½oz lactose free yogurt thinned with 2 tbsp lactose free milk


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease and line a rectangular baking tin (approximately 26cm x 20cm/10½in x 8in).

In a saucepan combine the fruit with 50ml/2fl oz water. Bring the fruit just to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes.

In a mixing bowl combine the caster sugar with the cornflour. Stir into the fruit and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture is thick and jammy. Set aside to cool.

For the crumble topping, add the gluten free flour to a mixing bowl and rub in the lactose free butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs and no large lumps of butter are left. Stir in the sugar and set aside.

For the cake, in a large mixing bowl, sift together the gluten free flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir in the ground almonds until thoroughly combined.

In another bowl beat together the sugar with the melted butter, eggs, lactose free yogurt and milk mixture until thoroughly mixed. Stir into the gluten free flour mixture just to combine. Don’t overmix it, but watch out for big lumps of unmixed flour.

Spoon two-thirds of the mixture into the lined tin, gently spreading out evenly to the corners. Spoon the cooled fruit mixture evenly over the top.

Using a teaspoon, dot the remaining cake batter evenly on top of the fruit. This will not cover the entire cake, but make little hillocks with gaps in between. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the top, filling in all the gaps to cover the fruit.

Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes, until the crumble topping is golden-brown. Allow to cool for ten minutes in the tin, then transfer the cake in its paper to a cooling rack. This is cake is beautiful eaten while still warm, with a dollop of lactose free c ream – but is equally nice the next day.
