Made this for my family's Bank Holiday dinner yesterday and it was utterly scrumptious! I used a mixture of blueberries and blackberries at the base and this created a really lovely syrup-like surprise! It was so easy and quick and is now a firm family favourite! :D

Brilliant. Tasty easy and everyone loves it. It is not bland, the lemon adds a nice tang and mixed with the berries it adds to the flavor.

Squeezing half a lemon into the mixture was way too much and in everyone's opinion; overpowered the pudding. It was a bit of a plain, childish dish and I won't be making it again. Good for: baking with the kids and minus the lemon. Certainly not impressive!!

This recipe truly tastes as bland and plain as the photo above. I followed this to the letter and can't say I'll be doing it again. It just tastes of sponge as both the coconut and blueberry are not overwhelming flavours, you sort of question why you bothered adding either. Very dissapointing, 0/5.

Lovely pudding. It make enough for three of us and seconds for one! Blueberries, coconuts and lemon all together in a cake/pudding with creme fraiche; delicious. I've made this twice now and will happily make it again when blueberries are on offer.

Used cream, squeezy lemon and a very bad set of scales so quantities a bit guesswork but still lovely. A very forgiving recipe.

This pudding has a lovely flavour. Not the sort of thing for entertaining but I made it as written for the two of us, expecting some left over. But we ate it all. That was rather greedy. I served it with cream.

Found it a bit soggy on the bottom (its bottom, not mine) - the taste was good but the pudding didn't come out as I anticipated and wasn't consumed with the speed that puddings usually are in our house.

I cooked this for friends and doubled the quantities. Absolutely delicious even though I got the cooking time wrong! Will try again with pineapple I think!

What a delicious pudding, I can't fault this recipe! Made last night and have leftovers for tonight - I served with ice cream. A light baked pudding. I'd say this recipe would serve 3 people generously.

A keeper for sure. So easy, lovely crusty coconut topping and wonderful balance of sweet with a touch of sourness from the blueberries. I didn't have creme fraiche so used cream. I found it gave 3 good servings. Yummy
