BLUEBERRY & LEMON CURD RING

lemoncurd

Yes my love affair with Blueberries shows no sign of ending anytime soon. I absolutely adore these vibrant little blueberry pearls. Whats not to love about them , the fact that they are packed with vitamin C, the beautiful luminous blue colour or that they taste absolutely delicious and so so versatile. – you can put them in smoothies, porridge eat them on their own (I’m guilty of this).

My kids adore them in Smoothies, blueberries, oatmeal, honey and yogurt all blended together sometimes with frozen banana slices. They will take this over cereal any day of the week

Me as usual I love-baking with them. Scones, Muffins, bread to name but a few. This recipe is one of my favorites, blueberries teamed up with lemon, this partnership is definitely a marriage made in heaven.

You can se fresh or frozen blueberries.- they are equally good in this recipe

TIP

toss fresh blueberries in flour it stops themsinling, and I always use a baking spray to grease the tin

I’ts a very simple recipe and looks lovely in a ring or a bundt tin but I have tried it in a loaf pan as well and was equally as good

It is very worthwhile to make the blueberry coulisglaze for the top, because you can use any leftovers in scones or bread and butter pudding..will put the recipe up for that soon it is so delicious and comforting, but if your short on time just make a simple vanilla or lemon glaze and drizzle on top

Simple Blueberry Coulis

250g blueberries
50g caster sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract

Put the blueberries and sugar into a small pan with 100ml water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins until the fruit is soft. Stir in the vanilla, remove and cool a little.  It will thicken to almost jam like as it gets colder  yum

      Hi Kalli…this recipe works well with frozen fruit as well.. I have used frozen raspberries in the place of Blueberries and it was just as nice 🙂
