Blueberry Bog

What do you do with all these gorgeous, fresh blueberries?


This one is so big it covers a QUARTER...that is one BIG blueberry! You can just barely see the edge of the quarter peeking out on th left side.


What I made is Blueberry Bog...a family favorite.

This recipe sort of evolved into what it is today.
I thought I'd share it through the recipe box swap since this month's theme is "Garden Fresh."

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Ingredients:

3 cups washed blueberries (wash right before using)...set aside.

1/4 c butter, melted
1/2 c milk
1 and 1/3 c self rising flour
1 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together. Stir for about 2-3 minutes until everything is incorporated. The batter will be a bit lumpy. Don't overmix!

Grease or use PAM in a square or round baking dish (roughly 8x8 or 9x9)

Starting with the batter, pour half the batter into the dish and then top with half the berries.
Repeat once again. This will give you 2 layers of batter and 2 layers of berries.

Prepare the topping:

1/4 c COLD butter, cut into cubes
1/2 c sugar
2 TBLS brown sugar
1/3 c all purpose flour (NOT self rising)
1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Use a fork and work the butter into the remaining ingredients until the topping forms into little bits.

Sprinkle the topping over the blueberries.

Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Start checking it at an hour. My oven runs hot so it only takes an hour.

As an extra treat, serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. Look at the layers...yum........



Enjoy!
