This Blackberry Lemon Pudding is the dessert of late summer. With the summer heat chastening it might just be safe enough to turn your oven on again and if you do then you must make this delicious dessert.

Blackberries are without doubt my favourite berry. I have a deep affection for them as they grow abundantly in our area of North London so July to August we are never in short supply. It’s rare though that I actually pick the berries myself as Luke is obsessed with local foraging, as I’ve mentioned before. He only need leave the house for a half hour Billy walk to return absolutely laden with plump juicy berries. Of course it’s usually on a Monday when I am faced with three days of solo childcare so have no hope in hell of doing anything worthwhile with the berries save keeping a few in the fridge for eating. The rest have to be frozen for weekend baking.

I spend all week dreaming up the best use of the blackberries and my favourite recipe that I have made this blackberry season is this Blackberry Lemon Pudding. It has been such a huge hit in our house with the tartness of the blackberries pairing beautifully with lemon.

This gluten-free sponge uses a simple mix of a plain gluten-free flour blend (I use Doves Farm Gluten-Free Plain White Flour which is xanthan gum free) and ground almonds, leavened only with whisked egg whites. Lemon juice is added to the finished batter which gives the result of the batter separating during the bake so a soft cakey sponge gives way to a sweet lemon blackberry sauce puddled beneath.

I have made this Blackberry Lemon Pudding for a few Sundays now after our roast dinner and each time it is received with rapture, especially when served with a rich dollop of unsweetened whipped double cream.
