Good night, this was awesome! Normally I find it wrong to rate a recipe if I made a substitute but this is the exception. Blueberries were way expensive so I used fresh black raspberries and I don't think that affected it at all. The sauce is a must. Had it with husband for afternoon tea. Only thing is, I baked it in a souffle dish for about 30 minutes. I would even serve this for company brunch. One we will make again!
