Comfort food

German Blueberry TartPudding for our Sunday lunch today was an adaptation of Nigella Lawson's recipe for German Plum Tart (from How to be a Domestic Goddess (I'm still trying)). I had some leftover white bread dough which I used for the base, then added a mixture of wild blueberries (confession: they came from a frozen food aisle, not a hedgerow) and sugar, then topped with the crumble mixture as detailed in the recipe (140g plain flour, 100g brown sugar and 110g butter (I didn't have any walnuts or pecans, so they were left out)). It looked great and went down well, although I was a bit disappointed in the blueberries - they weren't very flavourful. I think I'd like to try this with rhubarb or something else with a more tart flavour.
