Pear cashew slice

Serves: 8
Prep: 20
Cook: 40

    A sweet, gluten free treat that's great served with your favourite hot drink. Cashews help to provide a firm texture, while soft pears and chewy apricots give the slice a burst of fruity flavour.


    • 3 ripe pears, peeled or 6 pear halves in juice, finely diced
    • 75g raw cashews, roughly chopped
    • ½ cup gluten-free self-raising flour
    • 100g soft brown sugar
    • 25g dairy-free margarine
    • 1 tbs golden syrup
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten


    1. Place the pears, cashews, flour and brown sugar in a bowl and mix together.
    2. Place the margarine and golden syrup in a small saucepan and stir over low heat until melted.
    3. Gently stir golden syrup mixture and egg into the pear mixture.
    4. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 20cm square tin and bake for 35-40 minutes at 180°C, or until golden and cooked through. Leave to cool in the tin before slicing.


    • Remember to always check the label of each ingredient to ensure it is gluten free.
