Berry Yogurt Crumble Cake


So it is berry season again and what a lovely time of year, the air is refreshingly cooler.

We have a great fruit barn were you can buy all local fruit and veggies, so I bought some gorgeous strawberries and raspberries. My cousin Mandy just arrived from the UK and my mum was holding a family BBQ, it was a perfect time to try my new recipe.

My brother cooked the BBQ it was really good, so much food. Later we all enjoyed a cup of tea and a piece of cake - with a dollop of cream of course. We all sat outside enjoying the afternoon sun, everybody loved the cake! Defiantly one to put with my favorites.
