    cakes worked well, really golden but tasted bitter.  -  23 Aug 2014


    Lovely! Simple and great texture - picked some blackberries but not the normal quantity we use to make wine/jam etc due to ill health - perfect use (the berries were too tart for eating raw but great in cake). Don't be put off by golden castor sugar. I replaced it with a mix of white castor and some light brown sugar. Ingredients are very simple as are instructions. Thank you  -  03 Sep 2014


    Went blackberry picking with 2 year old daughter and wanted to make something delicious with them. Can't fault this recipe. It's dead simple, most of the ingredients you'll already have in your fridge and even my daughter helped to make them. Will be making more in the morning to take to work  -  16 Aug 2014
