Method

Banana slice

  1. Heat oven to 160°C

  3. Mix together the baking soda and lemon juice
  4. Add baking soda and lemon juice along with ground almonds to the banana mixture and mix well
  5. Pour into a greased slice tray or roasting dish lined with baking paper to a depth of approximately 2cm, ensure the tray you use has sides that are at least 4cm high so you can pour the topping over the cooked cake without it overflowing
  6. Bake slice for approximately 30 minutes or until lightly browned and springy to the touch
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the tray

Berry topping

  1. Heat berries slowly in a saucepan until the juice runs from them and they are cooked.  Avoid stirring them so they don't lose their shape

  3. Add the water to the berries and allow to cool to room temperature

Assembly

  1. When the slice and berry topping are cool pour the berry topping over the slice still in the slice tin
  2. Refrigerate until the topping has set
