Light Apple Charlotte

Sugar-free linseed

Light, quick and easy to make

This is fabulously delicious and as a bonus, it is simple to make and healthy. I have served it to many friends and it’s enthusiastically received every time with many requests for the recipe.  This is quicker and easier to make than traditional Apple Charlotte.  As it doesn’t need any cooking it can be prepared in an instant.

It makes a delightful Summery dessert, ideal for parties, barbecues or just any day pudding. It’s light but satisfying and delicious.

Which Flaxjacks to use?

Almost all Flaxjacks are great in this recipe, traditional, plain or fruity, or for a healthier alternative with less sugar try sugar-free Carrot Cake, Courgette and Apple, Low Sugar Vanilla, Fruit Cake or Molasses. If your Flaxjacks have got a bit dry they are even better for making the crumbly layer. If you only have Chocolate Tiffin Flaxjacks then Pears or Oranges work much better than Apple – see the Chocolate Tiffin and Fruit Dessert.
