About this recipe: This traybake is easy to make and a lovely way to use raspberries that are in season or on offer. Kids love them. If you haven't got raspberries, use any sort of berry you like - blueberries, blackberries, etc.

I have made and frozen this ready for my Macmillan coffee morning. I had, of course, to do a quality testing and it was lovely and a good use of our raspberry and blackberry crop! I did follow the advice above and did not use egg, and it turned out fine. - 09 Sep 2013


I do like this recipe, I have made it twice, but much prefer it without the egg and using butter instead as this makes the mixture more crumbly instead of sticky. - 01 Aug 2012


I made this today using raspberries from the garden, left the egg out after reading other reviews and was so impressed how simple it was to make and how delicious it was....thanks for putting this recipe on ill be making it many times with different fruits 😃 - 03 Jul 2016
