Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a 20x30cm tin, or swiss roll tin.
In a medium bowl, stir together 200g sugar, plain flour and baking powder. Mix in salt and cinnamon, if desired. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of dough into the prepared tin.
In another bowl, stir together the 100g sugar and cornflour. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the dough in the tin. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
I made this with half frozen blueberries and half grated apples. It was delicious, this will become a regular in our house. Looking forward to trying with different combinations of fruit. - 27 Mar 2011
Made this, this evening, as practice for an open gardens event where tea and cakes will be offered. Followed recipe except for slight adjusment on filling - used 150g rhubarb 250g bluberries - turned out well. Tried some slightly warm with creme fraiche as supper desert, enjoyed by all. Leaving half to completely cool to see what would be like for event. - 30 Apr 2010
