Method

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4). Grease and line an open 20cm square cake tin.

  2. Step 2:

    Place all of the ingredients except the blueberries into a large mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth.

  3. Step 3:

    Spread into cake tin and sprinkle the blueberries over. Bake for 25 minutes until golden and just firm to the touch.

  4. Step 4:

    For the drizzle, warm the caster sugar and lemon juice together in a small pan, then drizzle over the cake whilst still warm. Allow to cool then cut into slices.
