Blueberry London Fog Cake

The London Fog drink was thought to have been invented in Vancouver in 1996 by a clever barista at the Buckwheat Cafe when a pregnant customer could not drink her usual caffeinated drink. I, an earl grey loving Vancouverite (and a frequent user of buckwheat) decided to get inventive and to use up the blueberries in my house. This recipe is perfect for Sunday afternoon tea parties, desserts at family gatherings, and even for breakfast (oops!).
