Blackberry Cake

On Sunday I whipped up a blackberry cake using some blackberries I'd got from Leeds Kirkgate Market.

I got out our trusty Bero book and made a basic Victoria Sponge, adding just a touch more sugar to take off the edge of the tartness of the blackberries.

I did go a little bit overboard with the amount of blackberries in it, so when I make this again I'll use less.  It was delicious served while still warm with some cream - but equally as scrumptious the next day.

I try to use Leeds Market as much as I can when I'm in Leeds on a weekend, I wanted to get all the ingredients I needed from there - but couldn't find a tin of mixed beans or a ciabatta loaf. I did the the fruit, some peppers and an onion, and some lovely goats cheese too.
