  2. Mix together the polenta, ground almonds, flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and lemon zest in a bowl.
  3. Pour in the olive oil, milk, vanilla and lemon juice and mix to combine and form a batter. Set aside.
  4. Meanwhile place the blackberries in a pan with the maple syrup and pomegranate concentrate and simmer for 5 minutes until softened. Mix the cornflour with 2 tablespoons water and pour in. Cook for a couple more minutes, stirring well so the sauce thickens.
  5. Spoon the blackberries and some of the sauce between each tin in a generous layer then pour over the batter to reach the top.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes until risen and golden. Leave to cool for 15 minutes then run a knife around each one and turn upside down onto a plate. Enjoy either hot or cold.
