    Just made this for Sunday tea with my home grown blueberries - and it is really, really good. To be honest I only had a bit over 200g blueberries but it is still good.  -  13 Sep 2015


    I made with frozen blueberries and its Soooo moist, and the crunchy crumble topping is yummy!...and definitely blue! Will try raspberries next time, as they're my favourite berries!  -  23 Feb 2015
