Melt the butter and mix with the sugar, flour and 1tbsp coconut to make the crumble topping. Set aside.

Mix the blueberries with the cane sugar and 1 tbsp coconut, place in an ovenproof dish and heat at 180 °C for four minutes. Sprinkle with the topping and bake in the oven for a further 15 minutes.



Home-made ice cream

Mix the egg yolk and honey, then add the vanilla seeds. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add the cream to the egg yolk and honey mix and carefully stir in the egg white. Place the mixture in a dish and freeze.

We recommend stirring the mixture every hour with a fork and using a wet spoon to serve.
