Adriano Zumbo’s Summer Fruit Daze

A zesty, flourless cake that is actually quite light and packed with flavour. I made these as individual cakes but you could make as one large cake too.

Gwynnie – is there anything you can’t do? I tweaked the original recipe  but these are still quite a healthy sweet treat.

Packed with berries and spice these muffins are great in lunchboxes and can also be made ahead, frozen and reheated when you need them. Isn’t that too easy?
