Buttermilk Berry Bites  


  • 150g Butter 
  • 3 tbs cup Rice syrup
  • 12 Dates (soaked in boiling water for 5 minutes) 
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence 
  • 2 Eggs 
  • 150ml Buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cup Flour (sifted)
  • 100g frozen Raspberries (frozen keeps their shape better)
  • 1 tsp ground Cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C and line a baking tin with baking paper. 
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, rice syrup and soaked dates together till it's nice and smooth. (It's fine if the dates are still in chunks).
  3. Then add the eggs, one at a time and mix it in well.  
  4. Mix in half the buttermilk and flour until smooth, then repeat this step with the remaining buttermilk and flour. 
  5. Gently fold in the frozen berries and spoon the mixture into your prepared baking tin and sprinkle with the ground cinnamon.
  6. Bake for 50-55 minutes and let it cool in the tray for 10 minutes before removing and cutting into slices. 

Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Can be frozen, but best eaten straight away.
