Serves 8

  • 230g rice flour
  • 80g potato or tapioca flour
  • ½ tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tbsp sugar

For the berry sauce:

  • 250g blueberries and raspberries

2. Mix all the dry ingredients together, then stir in the wet ingredients, including the egg replacement.

4. Meanwhile, heat all of the ingredients for the berry sauce in a small saucepan over a medium-low heat, stirring frequently until the berries burst and the mixture is saucy.
