This slice is delicious, it is jam packed full of fresh fruit. This is an absolute family favourite in our house. I don't know what it is about buttermilk, but I seem to love cakes that have buttermilk in it, it seems to cut through some of the sweetness in cakes, I don't know, but I love it.
You definitely need the apple in this slice, but the berries are interchangeable, I have tried many different versions of this slice over the years, I've used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, mulberries, raspberries... It is a great summer recipe as berries are in season and quite cheap. Don't use frozen berries, as they don't work as well.
This is truly a slice I have been making for years and it is so good, I'll be making it for many more years to come.

150g unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups caster sugar
2 cups self raising flour
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large granny smith apples, peeled and cored
Icing sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease and line with baking paper a 32cm x 23cm baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl add the butter and sugar and beat with electric beaters until light and fluffy. Add one egg and beat until just combined. Add the other egg and vanilla and beat until mixed in well.
Add the buttermilk and flour. Using the slowest speed, mix until just combined, or mix it in with a spoon.
Cut the peeled and cored apple into quarters, thinly slice.
Spread the base of the baking dish with some of the cake mix. It needs to be 5mm thick layer.
Scatter over all of the berries. No need to press them down.
