The never-ending rain over here has got me all nostalgic for summer, which seems like a long long time away at the moment.
The only way to counter the gloomy state of affairs over here is to make a summer berry treat with blueberries from some sunny country on the other side of the world. Well, it’s either that or stick my head in a HUGE tub of ice-cream…which I can say that I am tempted to do given that our heating has gone a bit crazy and refuses to turn off!
This recipe adapted from Allrecipes isn’t dairy-free but Hubs was even willing to overlook that and suffer the consequences! Hehe!
Ingredients (adapted from Allrecipes)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar (Allrecipes uses white)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cups blueberries
