About this recipe: I love baking! This is a fab recipe for mini cakes flavoured with lemon zest and studded with blueberries. The cakes are very moist and especially delicious thanks to a combination of flour and ground almonds. If you want, you could swap the blueberries for raspberries or blackberries, and the lemon for vanilla.
