I have made this too many times to count because it is so popular and so easy too. In fact I always make double and bake 2 tins at once!

Ingredients
100g softened butter
175g self-raising flour
1tsp baking powder
175g golden caster sugar
2 eggs
6tbsp milk
Rind of 1 lemon
150g blueberries
For the icing
Juice of 1 lemon
75g caster sugar

Method
Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4.

Place all ingredients except the berries into a large bowl and beat until smooth.
Spread into a lined 18cm cake tin and sprinkle the berries over. ( Do not be tempted to push the berries in, they will sink naturally and evenly during cooking)

Bake for 25 mins until golden.

Mix the lemon juice and caster sugar together, then drizzle over the cake while still warm. Cut into slices when cool.

I was inspired by my own entry to the recipe challenge page to make these but I didn't have any blueberries so I used frozen raspberries which has been a most delicious variation.
