Emergency blueberry & pear Cake

Lisa Grønsund


My mom celebrated her birthday not so long ago and for some reason instead of making a cake herself, she assumed I would make one for her.
The only thing was.... I hadn't been informed of this until 2 hours before we had to meet for dinner :D

Luckily I found an interesting recipe I could use for inspiration. So, I strived to make something out of what I had in the fridge that wouldn't take too long and would be succesful.
