    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes plus 30 minutes cooling 50 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 300g blueberries, washed
    • 1 tbsp caster sugar

    1. Keep aside a handful of blueberries for decoration, then place the remainder in a small pan with the caster sugar and lemon juice to make a compote.

    3. Spoon the cooled blueberry compote into the bottom of 6 glasses, then top with the custard mixture. Chill for 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
