Gluten free mini apple & blackberry cakes

My lovely neighbours gave me a bag of cooking apples from the tree in their garden. So with all the yummy apples and blackberries, I have started baking them in to sweet treats.

First I decided to make mini blackberry and apple cakes, giving me a chance to finally use my 12 cup mini sandwich tin.

I am in love! they are beautifully moist fruit cakes with a hint of cinnamon...
