For 20 years she has lived in aronia heaven. She has been there without knowing it. Every fall she has looked at the beautiful dark berries thinking how great color they have. These berries grow everywhere in her hometown. She has had them in her back yard, at her finger tips, in flower arrangements, but she has never before used them for any kind of dish. What a shame, since these berries are divine.
Getting out of stillness consists of trying and doing every day something new, so it was time to bake an aronia dessert. Risky, but the only thing that would happen is loosing her time of stillness, and a few ingredients.
It was worth it. She got totally hooked! It was soooo good. This aronia berry has a cheery, perky, bitter sweet taste. And the color is directly suitable for somebody who has switched over to the dark side.
Now this is what Ini did and you should too. It is an easy lovely desert.
ARONIA DIVINE , Gluten Free and Vegan
Cover a cake mold with greaseproof paper. Wash a bowl of apples and aronia berries. Slice the apples and put them in a baking mold together with aronia berries.
On the top spread about 1.5 dl of brown sugar.
Sprinkle in about 0.5 dl coconut four.
Next pour in about 2 dl buckwheat or oatmeal flakes. Spread evenly with your fingers. Add in cinnamon for your taste.
Slice margarine (about 100 g) (or butter if you are not vegan) and spread evenly on the top. Last you spread a small amount of brown sugar to give color.
Bake in 180 C oven for about 25 – 30 minutes. Until on top it is nice brown color. Switch the oven off and open slightly the oven door. Leave the pie in the oven for an other 30 minutes.
You can eat it just like that.
Ini served it with vanilla cream.
She wanted to know how the others liked it, so she asked her husband what he thinks. It was him, who said this is totally DIVINE!
