We are partial to blueberries – we eat them in pancakes, blueberry muffins and smoothies. I’ve experimented with these healthy little ‘super fruits’ in all types of desserts. What I was after was a cake like a blueberry muffin. Something rich and teacake-like but with blueberries. The recipe is based on a a Dorset apple cake and is enriched with walnuts and blueberries. Apples have an affinity with blueberries in the same way as they do with blackberries, the flavour is fantastic – more summery than autumnal. Blueberries now have a perpetual season, but there are often gluts in summer with offers and lower prices.
