    About this recipe: Hello! I've tried a few variations on this loaf (raspberry and white chocolate) and this is my favourite way to make it.

    Ingredients

    • 150g self raising flour
    • 150g caster sugar
    • 150g blackberry
    • 2 large cooking apples
    • 150g butter
    • 50 ml milk
    • 2 eggs
    • vanilla essence
    • 60g ground almonds

    Method

    1. PREHEAT YOUR OVEN TO 160 celcius
    2. Grease loaf tin with a bit of butter
    3. Melt 30g butter in a pan and add in peeled and sliced apples, leave to cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a few drops of vanilla essence, stir, sprinkle over 30g ground almond and check the texture. Cook on low heat until soft. Leave to cool.
    4. Cream (mash together) 150g butter and 150g sugar together in a bowl
    5. Whisk two eggs and a bit of vanilla essence seperately and slowly beat in to mixture
    6. Fold in 150g flour and 30g ground almonds
    7. Arrange accordingly in a loaf tin (alternatively make in a muffin/cake/within reason anything will work tin). I did three big dollops of mixture , then carefully add apple mixture and blueberries and a blob of jam and then cover with more mixture
    8. Cook for approx 50 mins. Check at 45 and skewer test if you think it's ready
    9. Leave to cool for 10 mins before transfering on to a cooling rack. I had leftover blackberries/apples so made a crumble using an oat based topping (75g porridge oats, 100g melted butter and 50g brown sugar.
