Serves 8


2 cups frozen blueberries (you can use any fruit you choose and canned fruit minus the juice)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon of cinnamon

1 large egg

1/2 cup (1 stick) real butter

3 cup self-rising flour

2 cups milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Place butter in cast iron skillet and let it melt in the oven. (you can also do it in a 9 x 12 Pyrex dish if you do not have iron skillet)

3. Meanwhile, mix together flour, egg,   sugars, milk, cinnamon and vanilla, the batter should be  easy to pour.  Pour batter into hot dish, over melted butter. Spoon berries (I use frozen blueberries harvested from our bushes earlier in the yea and frozen)  all over  batter until you have some  in every area of the batter.

4. Bake for about 35  to 40 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool. Serve warm.

Note:  using canned fruit or fresh not frozen  minus juice will cut down baking time by about 15 minutes…each oven is wee bit different and when you put toothpick in middle comes clean and it is golden brown it is ready.  I turn off and let sit in warm oven for 10 minutes after I turn off)
