  • 1 eating apple grated (I finely grate it to hide it from the children!)
  • 225g Blackberries
  • 250g Self Raising Flour
  • 175g Butter
  • 175g Light Muscavado Sugar (I use any brown sugar if I have run out!)

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1tsp Baking Powder


  1. Preheat the oven
  2. Line the loaf tin
  3. Rub the flour, butter and sugar together to make fine crumbs
  4. Add in the cinnamon, apple, eggs and baking powder. Lightly mix until all combined.
  5. Gently fold in most of the berries and spoon into the tin
  6. Scatter the rest of the berries on top.
  7. Bake for 45 mins and check (cover with foil if it is browning too quickly)
