    Blueberry Almond Cream

    In this very simple dish, the blueberries are held in a sweet, delicate custard. You really do need a blender, in order to amalgamate the marzipan with the other ingredients. The almond flavour is very subtle, so add a few drops of almond extract if you like a stronger taste.

    Ingredients

    • Butter for greasing
    • 375g blueberries
    • 50g light muscovado sugar
    • 150g marzipan, chopped
    • 150g full fat soft cheese
    • 3 medium eggs
    • A few drops of almond extract (optional)

    Method

    1. Butter a 25cm-diameter round flan dish, and preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Put the blueberries in the flan dish and scatter with the sugar.
    2. Spread the marzipan, cheese, eggs and almond extract (if using) in a blender and process for a minute or two until smooth.
