2 low-sugar (vegetarian) desserts

Tea Brack

This is a family recipe so measurements are a bit wild


  • Bran flakes (500g)
  • Raisins (250g)
  • Sultanas (250g)
  • Cherries (100g)
  • Banana Tea Seeds (optional)
  • Nuts (of your choice, we use crushed walnuts)
  • Egg Flour


Soak your desired amount of bran flakes and fruits in cold tea for at least an hour (you can go overnight if you’re busy or lazy). Once done soaking add nuts and seeds and one egg. Add enough flour to make the consistency enough to stick to the back of a spoon but loose enough that it will slip off. Toss in the oven for an hour at 180c. Ready when you can pull the fork out and it’s clean

This recipe keeps for at least a week or two when cooked and tends not to go stale.

  • 1 egg
  • 125 mililiter of milk
  • drop of oil for greasing
