    Made this, it is amazingly yum! My son wants me to make it for him as his birthday cake, as he liked it so much. I am wondering if you can freeze it?

  5. Jennifer T says:

    Hi , I this looks really delicious cos I m a huuuge fan of anything lemon-ey.
    However, I don’t fare too well with condensed milk . Any way to sub this with ? Or leave it out( no harm asking). But I totally would understand if there’s no other sub for it.
    Thnks

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Jennifer, hmm good question! I’ve ever made it with condensed milk so I wouldnt feel confident saying what might work as a substitute! But please let me know if you do try something different!

  6. Natalie says:

    H i Lucy, I made this last night and it was a hit at work. While the slice was delicious I found that that after refrigerating overnight, the slice was quite “sticky”. It kind of fell apart and was gooey which made it difficult to pick up an individual slice. By the end of the day the sugars had made the bottom of the slice sticky. Do you have any idea as to why this would have happened?

    Thanks – love the recipe though and will make again.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Natalie, Yes you’re absolutely right the bottom can go a bit sticky! It’s generally because of the liquid from the blueberries. Fresh blueberries tend to not go as sticky but still a little bit!

  7. Belinda says:

    I made this for morning tea at work today and it was a hit. It went so quickly. I could hear people saying how lovely it was. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!!! I’m so happy you enjoyed it!
