Directions

Step1

CAKE… Heat oven to 170 degrees C.

Step2

Beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg.

Step3

Sift a little of the flour over the blackberries to coat them (reduces the sinking of fruit to the bottom of the cake).

Step4

Combine flour, salt and bicarb soda and sift into the butter mix. Stir together. Fold in apple juice and vinegar to make a stiff batter. Fold in the blackberries. Spoon into the pan and smooth top.

Step5

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until it shrinks from the sides of the tin and is firm on top.

Step6

Let cool in the pan. While cooling, make the glaze.

Step7

GLAZE… Boil lemon juice and sugar together until a thick syrup forms. Prick the top of the cake a few times with a skewer. Pour over the hot glaze.
