  • 250g porridge oats
  • 100g ground almonds
  • tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp fine salt
  • 50g soft dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • 350ml Alpro Oat Unsweetened drink
  • 1 British Blacktail Free Range Egg, beaten
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp almond extract
  • 2 conference pears


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Line a 21cm square cake tin with parchment. Mix the oats, ground almonds, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and apricots in a large mixing bowl. In a jug, whisk together the Alpro oat drink, egg, mashed bananas, maple syrup and almond extract.

  2. Pour the oat drink mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients. Peel, halve and core both pears. Cut 1 pear into 1cm dice and stir through the mixture. Tip the mixture into the cake tin, smoothing the top.
