Amaranth Berry Cake

Raspberry Lemon & Almond Slice

125g butter
1 cup caster sugar
splash of vanilla essence (about 1.5 tsp)
3 eggs
1/2 cup plain yoghurt with a splash of lemon juice
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup amaranth flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup potato starch
1 cup frozen rasberries

This slice is alot like a friand.  It is slighly chewy on the outside, soft and moist on the inside and smells and looks amazing fresh out of the oven, with the raspberry marbled top. It looks and tastes “special” its flavours ideal to serve to your grain-eating guests who would normally find the flavours of buckwheat and amaranth too strong – give them this with a dusting of icing sugar and a spoon of thick yoghurt or cream to serve, and you will have some very happy people begging you for the recipe.  Lots of sugar so not even pretending this one is healthy but perfect for an occasional treat.
