For the cake:

For the blackberry topping

Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius (375 F). Butter a baking dish (20x16 cm). In large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, thyme and the lemon zest. Add the cold butter, cut into small cubes. With hands or fork, mix the butter with the other ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs. Beat the egg yolk with and vanilla until combine. Incorporate it in the other mixture.  Press 2/3 of the mixture into prepared dish.

For the topping

Add the blackberries in a bowl. Sprinkle the sugar, cornstarch and squeeze some lemon juice over them. Toss them until evenly coated.  Spread the mixture over crust in the baking dish. Sprinkle remaining crust mixture over them. Press gently. Sprincle the brown sugar on top.

 

 

Bake for about 40 minutes in the oven until top is golden brown.  Take out from the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes.  Cut into squares.  I left mine over the night in the fridge. It is easier for cutting.

 

 

Before serving you can warm it in a microwave and serve it with some ice cream.

 

Enjoy,

Desi

 

P.S The blackberry cake staid a little longer in the refrigerator than it was planned. As a result, the sugar has melted and the top was not so crispy. To get back to its suitable for serving  shape, I sprinkle some chopped butter cookies on top;)
