    Good day all, Not sure if this is a disaster but need help please. Yesterday I tried a recipe for the first time, a lemon and blue berry loaf and the blueberries sunk! I used fresh blueberries, frozen but thawed. Should I have tossed them in flour like one does with cherries. It was delicious so want to make another one today for a friend.
    p.s. Is there a spellcheck for this site?

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    There are many different variables that cause fruit to sink unfortunately, so it may not be just that they weren't coated in flour. Generally speaking, fruit is less likely to sink if it is small (so cut up any large berries), if the fruit is not slippery (which is why coating in flour helps), and if the batter is thicker (so if your batter is liquidy then maybe find a different recipe).

    The forum doesn't have a spellchecker as such, but most browsers have one.
