What colours, when added together, turn green?
It’s blue and yellow!!!
Or at least I think that was what happened to my blueberry crumble cake. I must have streak the blueberries into the yellow batter unknowingly, resulting in one area of the cake looking rather greenish. Too bad for the appearance though because I really like this cake! It was moist-the way a cake should be.
I saw this recipe featured on Fresh from the Oven sometime back and saved it in my recipes folder. I used frozen blueberries as the fresh ones are really expensive-but still love the bite in the blueberries in the cake. Certainly one that is a keeper….. except the green streaks!
