Preheat oven to 180°C.
Beat the whole eggs with the remaining 90 gr of sugar until the mixture whitens. Meanwhile cube and melt butter. Add flour with baking powder and the pinch of salt. Then add melted butter, mix. Finally, gradually pour milk. Beat until well blended.
Finally add the fruits, mix roughly. Break up big blackcurrants (or blackberrieso that their juice flavor the dough.
