  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter the sides of a 25cm cake tin and line the base with a disc of baking parchment.
  • Peel the apples, then cut one and one half into 1cm dice and the remaining half into thin slices about 5mm thick to decorate the cake. Sift the flour, baking powder and almonds into a large bowl then add the sugar and mix together.
  • Add the one and one half diced apples, & the blueberries and gently stir until the fruit is coated with the dry ingredients. Then add the melted butter , the beaten eggs and the one quarter teaspoon almond essence (if using). Mix all the ingredients together until combined. Tip the batter into the prepared tin, then lay the apple slices on top to decorate the edge of the cake.
  • Bake for about 50 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • When the cake has finished cooking, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Loosen around the edges using a small, sharp knife and carefully remove the cake from the tin. Leave the cake to get fully cold before cutting.
  • Serve with some lightly whipped cream and some fresh Blueberries. Enjoy!
