  • 140 g caster sugar
  • 140 g unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 140 g self raising flour
  • half a teaspoon baking powder
  • quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon mixed spice and ground ginger
  • 2 eating apples peeled and grated grate when ready to add them otherwise they will go brown
  • 1 punnet/250g of blackberries


  • Grease and line an 8 inch cake tin. Preheat the oven to 180º/160ºC fan.
  • -In a bowl cream together the sugar and the butter until light and fluffy.
  • -Add the eggs and mix in well.
  • -Sieve in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger in the bowl and mix well.
  • -Grate the apple and dry off with a paper towel and mix in well. If the apple has made the mix very wet add a little more flour a tablespoon at a time.
  • -Fill the cake tin with the mixture and add the blackberries making sure you can still see the tops of them.
  • -Bake for 25-40 minutes until golden brown and until a cake tester comes out clean.
  • -Allow to cool in the tin for about 10 minutes then take out of the tin and transfer to a cooling wrack.
  • I love this cake when it’s still warm with custard.
