  • 50 gr raisins

  • pre-heat your oven at 180°C/350 F
  • start by preparing the usual flax-egg (mixing the ground flaxseed with the water and letting it rest 5-10 minutes) and letting the raisins soften in some lukewarm water
  • mix the dry ingredients, then squeeze and drain the raisins, mix it with the dry part then add the liquid ingredients, the flaxegg and whisk it all together
  • cut two apples into small and thin pieces and add them to the batter

  • you can replace cream of tartar + baking soda with baking powder
