Blackberry Liqueur

Blackberry Liqueur

A little late in the year to make this with fresh berries, but it does work just as well with frozen if you have any stashed away. The colour is a really deep purple and it tastes great. This would make an ideal homemade Christmas present.

Blackberry Tart with Lime Cream

Blackberry Tart with Lime Cream

You can also vary this cake: use raspberries or blueberries instead of blackberries and lemons instead of limes. My blackberries were rather sour but if you have sweet berries, you can reduce the amount of sugar a bit.

Basque cake
