For the filling:
A high power blender is really helpful for this recipe because the filling batter is quite thick. Soaking the cashews helps to soften them and make blending easier, but you may still need to stop the blender several times while processing to make sure the motor doesn't overheat.
For a twist, try raspberries, strawberries, cherries or blackberries instead of blueberries!
