Preheat the oven to 160C. Grease and line a 22cm springform tin with baking paper.

Place the butter and caster sugar into the bowl of a mixer and beat until fluffy. With the motor still going add the eggs one by one, beating well between each addition. Add a pinch of salt, lemon zest, almond meal, polenta and baking powder and fold through until incorporated.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and top with berries. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool for at least 15 minutes before removing from tin. Dust with icing sugar.
