  • Stir the baking powder into the rubbed-in mixture in the large bowl, and then quickly and lightly stir in the egg mixture until it drops lightly from the spoon. Don’t over mix.

  • Gently fold in 3 quarters of the berries with the metal spoon trying not to break them up.

  • Peel off the paper before cutting. Will keep wrap in foil or in a tin for upto 2 days.
