    • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes, plus standing

    Serves: 6


    150g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra to grease
    350g Waitrose & Partners Blueberries
    175g caster sugar, plus extra to sprinkle
    3 eggs, beaten
    150g ground almonds
    50g self-raising flour
    ¼ tsp fine sea salt
    50g flaked almonds


    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Grease a brownie tin with butter and scatter in all but a large handful of the blueberries. Using electric beaters, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs until fully incorporated. Fold in the ground almonds, flour, salt and the remaining blueberries.
