Chocolate Blueberry Bites

Low in sugar, high in fruit content & toddler approved! If you don't have children this is a great quick recipe to enjoy with a cup of tea or on the go.
With so much fruit in our household it's hard to eat it all without them going off or becoming too ripe. One solution we all love at home is my famous surprise moist fruit cake. It take 10 minutes at a push to prepare and a great surprise to see what fruit you used! It can literally be any fruit you like - the best kind are the ones with lots of juice! (peach/berries/pears). They come out really fresh and moist!

2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar (I sometimes use brown)
2 tablespoons of oil
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder (Bournville)
Vanilla (extract or seeds) -optional
1 cup of milk
2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 cups of flour
Blueberries (2 cups) - or any fruit you like (as much as you like!)

I use my mixer when making this recipe however of course you can do it by hand. Like I mentioned before, this is so quick the instructions are going to be basic!

Firstly, add your eggs and sugar into a bowl and mix well. Sieve your flour , cocoa powder and baking powder into the egg mixture. Depending on how chocolatey you want your Blueberry bites, adding a little more cocoa powder will create that. Now you want to start pouring in your milk until a cake like consistency is formed. When your happy with your mixture, wash, cut or peel the fruit your adding. (In this case blueberries) , and fold in the mixture.

Add your mixture into a cake tin or a square tin and bake at 180 degrees for 40 minutes.
Let it cool and rest before cutting (I use a Pizza cutter and make miniature bites for a packed lunch dessert). Children love these!
