Blueberry Cake and Custard

Created by admin, Sunday, 19 September 2010


Blueberries grow wild in Newfoundland. Every fall my mother would make Blueberry Cake with freshly picked blueberries. Custard was served as a topping with this dessert. Blueberry Cake and Custard was usually served, at least in our house, after a Stuffed Squid dinner.
