I had no intentions of baking anything today but in April, when you wake in the morning to hail stones knocking at the window and -1 degree C temperatures, the first thing I wanted to do was create some cosy in the kitchen! This raspberry Streusel bake is just perfect for such an occasion.  The inviting aromas of sweet baked raspberries, a moist centre with a sweet and crunchy topping….. Once it’s in the oven, you have time for a quick cuppa and a tidy up of the kitchen before removing it from the oven to cool, then slice and eat with lashings of creamy yoghurt – now that’s what I call turning a brisk cold morning into a cosy one!

Because fresh raspberries are out of season for at least a few more months, I used frozen ones which work just as well so alternate depending on the season.  Feel free to swap the berries too – strawberries, blackberries, blueberries – or a mix of all of them will still taste delicious whatever you choose.  Chocolate chunks would work well too 😉
