Vegetable oil, for greasing

250g digestive biscuits, crushed into fine crumbs

100g butter

2 tbsp golden syrup

For the filling

300ml double cream

400g tin condensed milk

2 lemons, grated zest and juice

125g blueberries

For the blueberry sauce

2 tsp cornflour

6 tbsp water

2 tbsp caster sugar

125g blueberries, some reserved for decoration

100ml double or fresh cream, whipped for topping (optional)

Brush a 23cm spring form tin with a little vegetable oil.

Heat the butter and syrup in a saucepan until the butter has melted.

Remove from the heat and stir in the biscuit crumbs until well coated in the butter then tip into the tin and press into an even layer over the base.

In the meantime, using a large bowl, whip the cream until it forms soft swirls.

Gradually whisk in the condensed milk, add the lemon zest and gradually whisk in the lemon juice until the mixture is smooth and thick.

Fold in the blueberries.

Pour into the prepared tin, spread into an even layer then chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours.

For the sauce, mix the cornflour and water together in a small saucepan, add the sugar and blueberries and cook for 4-5 minutes over a gentle heat, stirring until the juices start coming out from the blueberries and the sauce thickens.

Leave to cool.

To serve, loosen the edge of the tart, remove the tin sides and base and transfer to a serving plate.

Cut into slices and serve with spoonfuls of the sauce and whipped cream if you like.
