Apple and Berry Gluten-Free Loaf

This delicious Apple and Berry Gluten-free loaf is incredibly moist. We love eating it for dessert served with cream or ice cream and we especially love eating it for Breakfast! That’s right dessert for breakfast minus the guilt because it’s actually full of healthy ingredients and it’s not super sweet.

When we have it for breakfast we serve it up with a nice dollop of Greek yoghurt or creamy ricotta and berries. It is so delicious and it just looks so pretty with all the rich colours. The old saying “You eat with your eyes” comes to mind here and I think that this is certainly true. When a dish looks visually appealing it is even more appetizing.

A good thing to note is that because the loaf is so moist it is a good idea to pop a slice under the grill and toast it first. Then it comes out with the most divine crispy edges and adds to the overall flavour and texture.
