Berry Crumble Dessert Cake


WOW this is on my must-do list! 



  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) rice bran oil
  • 1/3 cup (95g) honey
  • ½ cup (50g) desiccated coconut
  • ¾ cup (120g) wholemeal (whole-wheat) self-raising (self-rising) flour
  • 1/3 cup (35g) almond meal (ground almonds)


  • ¼ cup (75g) honey
  • ½ cup (125ml) rice bran oil
  • ½ cup (50g) desiccated coconut
  • ½ cup (80g) wholemeal (whole-wheat) self-raising (self-rising) flour
  • 1/3 cup (45g) slivered almonds
  • 2 cups (250g) mixed berries, fresh or frozen (if frozen allow to thaw)


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C (325°F) fan-forced.
  2. Whisk egg, oil and honey together until smooth. Using a spoon, mix in coconut, flour and almond meal until combined.
  3. Grease a round 20cm cake tin with oil and line base with baking paper. Spread the mixture over the bottom of the base, using a spatula, to make sure that it covers the whole base.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from oven.
  5. Increase the oven temperature to 170°C (335°F).

  7. Cover the top of the cooked base evenly with the berries and then using your fingers, crumble the crumble mixture over the top of the berries.
  8. Bake for a further 30 minutes.
  9. Serve warm.
