  • 5 ounces superfine sugar
  • 5 ounces almond meal
  • 5 ounces self-rising flour

Blackberry and Cinnamon Cake is a community recipe submitted by fosse and has not been tested by so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Heat oven to gas 4/160C fan/180C non-fan. Grease and line a 23cm springform tin.
  • Combine all the ingredients except the blackberries and beat well. Spread half the mixture into the tin (I use a rubber spatula) and then scatter the blackberries over.
  • Dot over the remaining mixture so that it covers the fruit (mine is always a bit hit and miss).
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 1 hour until golden and springy.
  • Cool in the tin then sift over confectioners' sugar and cinnamon.
  • Additional Information

    I have also used 3oz almonds and 2oz polenta and it worked very well.
