blackberry and apple cake

i’m sorry things have slowed down on the blog over the past few weeks. i’ve been having a stressful time at work and have had a few bugs which have really hit my energy levels – yesterday i was desperate to go to bed at 6:30pm but managed to hold out until just after 8!

as a result my cooking has not been particularly inspired as i’ve relied heavily on old favourites. not that that’s a bad thing, particularly when it comes to nigel slater’s moist plum cake, adapted above as a blackberry and apple cake and previously as a cherry and almond cake.
