    An alternative to normal gooseberry recipes. I've only made it once and found it a little wet.  -  30 Mar 2012


    Very easy to make and delicious with icecream. I used a loaf tin and found it needed at least 60 mins baking as it was slow to cook in the centre.  -  26 Jul 2016


    Very quick and easy to make, I just threw it all in the food processor then added the gooseberries. Served it whilst warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream - lovely  -  10 Aug 2013
