Crumble Forest Fruit Cake

Updated: Feb 14

  • Forest fruit cake is a delicious dessert made up of a soft base, a fruit filling and a crunchy crumb coating. In this recipe I propose it with blackberries and raspberries, an excellent dessert to serve after dinner, perhaps with vanilla cream, but also a delicious sweetness for tea time. Follow recipe.
