    Do you put the lemonade on frozen, or do you just thaw it and pour or mix it with water first?

      Why would you freeze the lemonade? And why would you add water to it?
      I have tried something like this and it works really well. The only thing frozen are the berries and as it’s going straight into the oven, they melt quickly enough….

      The recipe does not say ” frozen” lemonade. It is just a normal can of lemonade.

    It’s a novel recipe which could be useful in an energency. (IF you happen to have these3 ingredients on hand). Me: I think I’ d sooner keep a jar of easily-wizzed up crumble mix in the fridge to scatter over any seasonal fruit and bake. That’s my go-to emergency dessert. Very nice – also quite healthy & very economical. Great with icecream or yoghurt!

    I tried it tonight. I used a mix of blue berries and tinned apple as I didn’t have enough berries. It took about twice as long as they said to cook.After 20 mins the top didn’t even look like browning. Some of the powdered cake mixture came out still powdery and didn’t mix with the moisture. Tasted ok.
