Lemon Blueberry Bites

Sweet lemony berry treats

I just love simple recipes and this one is easy peasy! It is more or less Maria and Josh’s recipe from Two Peas and their Pod. If you’ve never seen their site, take a look. It’s fabulous!

Berry season is here and these sweet treats are perfect to celebrate. They are ideal for a warm day for two reasons: a) they do not need hours in the oven, and b) they are great served chilled and can be cut into small pieces for a little treat with afternoon tea!

Lemon Blueberry Bites

For the base:

  • 250g digestive biscuits (or similar: graham crackers, hobnobs etc)
  • 100g butter
  • zest of half a lemon

Crush biscuits. Mix with melted butter and zest. Press into a square 20cm cake tin lined with greased baking parchment. Bake for 10 mins at 180°C. Leave to cool a little.

For the topping:

  • 400g (14oz) tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • juice of 2 lemons (about half a cup)
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup blueberries (I used frozen)

Whisk milk and eggs until well combined. Whisk in lemon juice and zest. Stir in berries and pour over base. Bake for 20 mins at 180°C. Leave to cool in the tin, then chill. Cut into small squares just before serving – they are very sweet, but very delicious!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a nice day!

  1. Loooks goood. I´d love to try that. I just need to substitute the lemon. Maybe with vanilla? By the way, it seems that the two blueberries in the last picture look at you 😉

  2. YUM! Not only are your recipes outstanding, but your photography is incredible. Coming here to visit always leaves my mouth watering… And with another recipe I am eager to try! Thank you!
