  • 6 tbsp Streamline blackcurrant jam
  • 75g mixed dried fruit
  • 1 medium eating apple, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 0% yoghurt or orange zest to serve

What to do:

  1. Pre heat oven 200c/180c fan/ gas 6.

These look really nice. I'm going to give them a try this weekend. Will they freeze when baked?
