Apple and blueberry cake

This is a recipe from my friend Annick.
I bought some frozen blueberries last week and made some muffins with them, but had half a bag left. What to do with them? This cake was the answer.
You can serve it warm, with creme fraiche or cream as a dessert, or cold with a cuppa.


Here's the recipe:
225g sr flour
1/2 spn salt
125g butter or margarine
175g granulated sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
2 large eating apples, cored and sliced
125g blueberries
icing sugar

Preheat oven 190C/170C fan/gas5
Grease and line a 20cm cake tin.
Put the flour in a bowl with the salt; add the butter or marg and rub it in.
Add 125g of the sugar and the eggs and mix together.
Spread half of this mixture into your tin - I found this very difficult until I used a flat spatula.
Layer the apples and blueberries on top and sprinkle with the rest of the sugar.
Spoon in the rest of the mixture.
Bake for about 45 mins [ my oven isn't very reliable and it took 40 mins]
Cool in the tin for 10 mins then put on a wire rack to cool.
Sieve some icing sugar over the top.

I have to say that this isn't the most attractive looking cake you'll ever make, but it's certainly delicious.
We ate ours with a cuppa.
