An Easy Dessert that is Almost Blueberry Pie
April 2, 2015 19 Comments
If someone rang my doorbell and said, “Hey could you make me dessert?” this blueberry pancake would be the one I would make.
I doubt anyone would do this because my neighbors all think I am a healthy food nut. I might make them a kale smoothie and call it dessert.
The batter is made in a blender –whirrrrr – unless you don’t have a blender in which case you can mix is with a whisk.
You pour the batter over frozen blueberries and when it is done it is a cross between a pudding or flan and pancake.
I love that you don’t have to make a crust (or buy one) and all the ingredients are probably already in your pantry. You can make this with other fruit you have around the house like strawberries, apples, pears, blackberries, etc.
If I make this, my kids will demand it for breakfast. They will even get out of bed without complaining or faking that they are sick so they can stay home from school. Hey, it is better for you than Fruit Loops, right?
You don’t need to make it in a cast-iron skillet. I did because I think it looks pretty – any pie pan will work.
