This is sure to be a crowd pleaser with its soft, spongey cake, creamy topping and juicy blackberries. It’s ideal with a cup of tea or the kids will love it with a glass of milk. Make this for a neighbour, for parties, cake sales, Sunday lunch, afternoon tea or just because.

Tip: Use raspberries or strawberries instead of the blackberries when in season, replacing the purple food colouring with red, if using. Leave the cinnamon out in this case and use the finely grated zest of one lemon or lime instead.
