    I made this with half frozen blueberries and half grated apples. It was delicious, this will become a regular in our house. Looking forward to trying with different combinations of fruit.  -  27 Mar 2011


    Made this, this evening, as practice for an open gardens event where tea and cakes will be offered. Followed recipe except for slight adjusment on filling - used 150g rhubarb 250g bluberries - turned out well. Tried some slightly warm with creme fraiche as supper desert, enjoyed by all. Leaving half to completely cool to see what would be like for event.  -  30 Apr 2010
