  • 100g butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • Plain flour, for dusting
  • ½ x 500g pack Jus-Rol Shortcrust Pastry Block
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 2 British Blacktail Free Range Large Eggs
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 2 x 200g packs blackberries
  • 1 tbsp demerara sugar
  • 1 tbsp toasted flaked almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6 and grease a 25cm round fluted flan tin with butter. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pastry to a round about 5mm thick, then gently lift and use to line the prepared tin. Trim the edges. Cover with foil and fill with baking beans. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for 5 minutes more. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

  2. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C, gas mark 4, then beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 1 egg at a time, then fold in the ground almonds. Spoon the mixture into the pastry case, then spread over evenly.

  3. Arrange about ⅔ of the blackberries over the almond mixture, then scatter the demerara sugar over the top.

  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until risen and golden, then scatter with the flaked almonds and leave in the warm, switched-off oven, with the door ajar, for 15 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
