Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Spray a 20 cm springform cake tin with oil and set aside.

In a small bowl combine sugar, slivered almonds and cinnamon. Set aside.

Spread half of the batter into cake tin. Top with blueberries and half of the nut mixture. Then spoon remaining batter into pan and spread evenly.
