Lemon and Blackberry Crunch Cake :)

 

Ever since Alice dragged me to Aerial Silks yesterday (more circus related exercise!) i’ve been starving and Daddy always needs extra calories so a cake seemed a good idea 🙂

I’ve been wanting to try this combination for a while and finally got the chance today while Daddy was sleeping…

Ingredients:

100g Margarine

175g Golden caster sugar

175g Self-raising flour

1 heaped teaspoon baking powder

2 large eggs

4 tablespoons lemon juice

zest of 2 lemons

For the Crunchy Top:

Juice of 1.5 lemons

100g Golden caster sugar

 

Method:

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease and line a 7inch deep round cake tin.

Measure all the ingredients (except the blackberries) into a large bowl and beat well for about 2 minutes (until really well blended and smooth)

Stir in the blackberries and then turn into the prepared tin.

Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until springy.

While the cake is cooking make the crunchy topping by mixing the lemon juice and sugar in a bowl – then pour over the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven.

Let the cake cool in the tin… then turn out and enjoy – ideally with ice-cream and extra berries!

After about 10 minutes all that remained was…

So it can’t have been that bad 😉
