  1. Set aside 50g blueberries and add the rest to a saucepan with the sugar and 1 tsp water. Cook over a high heat for 5 mins, shaking the pan occasionally or until juicy. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 mins more until syrupy and reduced. Gently stir through 1 tsp lemon juice, then set aside to cool (it will thicken as it cools).
  2. Meanwhile, divide the cake cubes between glasses. Whip the cream to soft peaks.
  3. Spoon the cooled blueberry compote over the cake, then divide the custard between the glasses; spoon over the lemon curd.
  4. Top with the whipped cream, then scatter with the reserved fresh blueberries, lemon zest and toasted flaked almonds, if using. For maximum flavour chill for 2 hrs before eating, but they can be eaten straightaway.
