Nutritional values

This sweet cut has far less in it than some people suspect. Because it contains very little fat and, thanks to the raspberries, provides a lot of fibre which has a positive effect on cholesterol levels.

Even more intestine-healthy fibre is brought into play if you replace half of the flour with wholemeal flour.
