Today Grace and I are enjoying the perks of a lazy long weekend by retreating inside to escape the dark drizzly wet weather and spending all day long in our pj’s, playing, working, snuggling, watching movies and eating raspberry pikelets. One of my most favoured childhood memories is waking up to the scrumptious aromas of pikelets slowly sizzling in the frypan, my mum would often sneak out of bed half an hour before us kids to get to work on a batch of our favourite cakes to fill our lunch boxes and hungry tummy’s. Those mornings I would scramble out of bed and race to the kitchen filled with excitement and eagerly anticipating lunch time.
This morning we awoke to a clear bright blue sky and I decided we needed to celebrate with a little baked goodness in our lives, after a quick raid of the freezer I pulled out a stash of frozen blueberries and decided on blueberry crumb bars. These blueberry crumb bars are definitely not an everyday snack but they’re a delicious sweet treat and a welcomed surprise to the cake stand and lunch box this morning.
