    Blueberry and Raspberry Streusel Traybake

    This crumbly, fruity treat is something to look forward to after a long walk on Saturday afternoon. Make the day before and transport in its tin.

    • Total time: 45 minutes 45 minutes

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    • 225g self-raising flour
    • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
    • 175g butter
    • 150g light brown muscovado sugar
    • 75g ground almonds
    • 1 large egg
    • 250g raspberries
    • 150g blueberries
    • 25g roasted pistachio nuts (ready-shelled, find them in the fruit and vegetable section) roughly chopped
    • 25g flaked almonds

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Line a shallow tin measuring 25cm x 18cm with baking parchment. Place the flour in a food processor and whizz with the lemon zest and butter. Add the sugar and ground almonds and blend until the mixture is crumbly. Alternatively, rub the butter into the flour with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in the lemon zest, sugar and ground almonds.
    2. Reserve 175g of this mixture and set aside for the streusel topping. Add the egg to the remainder and, using a round-bladed knife, mix to a smooth, quite sticky dough. Line the base of the prepared tin with the dough, pressing it down with the back of a spoon.
    3. Sprinkle the raspberries and blueberries over the base. Stir the chopped pistachios and flaked almonds into the reserved streusel mixture and sprinkle on top of the fruits, pressing down gently. Bake for 30 minutes until golden. If the topping starts to brown too much, cover with foil. Allow to cool completely in the tin. Cut into squares and serve drizzled with single cream.
