What with my grandpa's blackberry bushes, and my dad picking wild blackberries, our house has become overrun by this delicious fruit. So far we have eaten them fresh, eaten them stewed, and the other day I decided to make a blackberry torte. A torte is a rich, layered cake filled with cream, mousse, or fruit, and usually made with ground almonds to give it a nutty flavour and denser texture. Based on the brands I used, each slice is about 277 calories.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

Ingredients
150g self raising wholemeal flour
150g ground almonds
75g margarine
20g Truvia sweetener (or 75g caster sugar if you prefer)
300g blackberries
2 tbsp half fat creme fraiche
1 tbsp flaked almonds
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs

Method
Pre-heat the oven to 180 ༠C/ 160 ༠C fan/350 ༠F/4 Gas.
