For the cake:

• 50g Co-op British blueberries
• Icing sugar, for dusting (optional)


Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/Gas 4
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the fruit mix
Grease a 24cm cake tin, sprinkle over a little flour and line with greaseproof paper
Spoon the fruit mix into the bottom of the tin, leaving some gaps in between
Mix the flour and bicarbonate of soda together
In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, vanilla extract and lemon zest until pale and fluffy
Pour the eggs into the creamed mixture a bit at a time, stirring and gradually sifting in the flour as you go
Once everything is combined, gently fold in the strawberry yogurt and spoon into the tin
Poke the blueberries into the cake mix and bake for 45-50 mins until springy to the touch
Remove from the oven and leave to cool
Once cooled, turn out the cake, carefully peel off the paper, and dust with the icing sugar, if using
