Blackberry and Apple Cake
A cake is in the oven as I write, and will be taken in to work, still warm. Must make sure the boss gets a big slice...
Preheat oven to 180c. Grease and line a large brownie tin or medium roasting tin.
Mix with electric mixer:
6 oz caster sugar
3 large free range eggs
6 oz self raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
Add several handfuls of freshly picked blackberries and about 3 medium apples, cored and chopped (I don't bother to peel them!) Mix gently to combine.
Pour mixture into tin and sprinkle with demerara sugar, then bake for about 35-40 mins.
Enjoy - picture to follow!
