Cream butter and sugar till light beat in eggs one at a time and vanilla. Fold in flour and then the milk followed by half the blackberries. Pour batter into sprayed 20 or 22 cm tin with baking paper in the base and scatter the remaining blackberries on top then the flaked almonds. Bake at 170 to 180C for about 45 minutes. A small amount of icing made with the juice of the orange anddrizzled over top isn't essential but adds a nice finishing touch. If using frozen berries DON'T thaw before adding to batter.

Rkcroft's Hazelnut Liqueur Mud Cake... ... . . WOW ! ! ! I would like to tell anyone who is looking for a special occasion cake that is guaranteed to impress, this is the one to make. The flavour is absolutely divine and some toasted hazelnuts and a few chocolate shavings on top made it look even more special. It is one of those "once a year" cakes that make home baking so worthwhile.

Butterscotch Centre Cake... . 125gm soft butter, 3/4c caster sugar, 2 eggs, 3/4c plain flour, 1/2c self raising flour, 1/4c milk, 1 tsp vanilla. Filling: 1/2c brown sugar, 2T custard powder, 1/2c milk, 2tsp butter, 1 egg. Make filling first. Combine brown sugar & custard powder in a small saucepan. Gradually stir in milk. Stir over heat until mix boils and thickens, then stir in butter. Cool 5 mins, then whisk in egg. Cake: Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and beat with electric mixer until smooth & light in colour. Spread half of the cake batter into a lined 20cm ring tin. Pour over butterscotch mix and top with remaining cake batter. You may not be able to smooth it very well as the batter is thick, but dot batter over the sauce as best you can. Bake @ 180°C for 30-40mins until cooked. Cool and dust with icing sugar. This is a lovely plain cake.
