Tell me, are you a winter person or are you lusting for spring already? I'm a bit of a winter person, but I love spring also. What I love about winter is cooking things like this - something that you can throw together on a whim and it makes you feel warm and lovely without a lot of effort.
Whilst it's put together much like a cobbler, to me it takes me back to SaraLee danishes. The crispy and sweet top and almost custardy insides and ooozy fruit is go-go-GORGEOUS. It's packed full of blueberries too - which you can tell yourself like I did, that they're full of anti-oxidants... so indulging in this gorgeous dessert which I don't even think needs cream or icecream (but don't let that stop you).. can make you feel a little spoiled whilst you can at least pretend you're being just a little bit virtuous.... you believe me right?
100g butter, at room temperature
zest of 1 lemon
3/4 cup caster sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups frozen blueberries
2 cups self raising flour
2 tb demerara sugar
Preheat oven to 180 degrees c
Cream butter, caster sugar and lemon zest together until light and fluffy.
Add buttermilk, vanilla and egg - don't worry if it looks like this!
Mix 1 cup of the flour with 1 cup of the blueberries...
Mix through your batter
Then add your other cup of flour and blueberries, stir through. It will be sturdy, don't panic.
Turn out into a greased flan/quiche tin. Press into the corners. Sprinkle with the demerara sugar...
Bake for 35-45 minutes.
Leave to cool for about 5 minutes to cool before serving..!
