  • cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon self-rising flour

  • Place the almond meal, coconut, sugar, flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Sift to remove any lumps.
  • Place the eggs in a separate medium bowl and whisk lightly. Add the melted butter, vanilla extract and lemon zest and whisk again until well combined. Pour this into the dry mixture and whisk to combine. Fold in 1 cup of the blueberries, then pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and almonds on top.
