Blueberry Breakfast Bake

>6 July 2012

This is by far my family’s favorite way to bake with blueberries. It works with fresh or frozen berries, and although I haven’t had a chance to try it yet I think canned would work just as well. We love to enjoy this for breakfast, but it also makes a great midday snack or dessert! The next time you get your hands on some blueberries, try it!

Blueberry Breakfast Bake

  • 2 c. flour (I like using freshly ground hard or soft wheat, but white flour works)
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2/3 c. softened butter
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Mix the flour, sugar and softened butter together until crumbly. If the butter is somewhat hard still, you can use a pastry blender, or two knives, to cut the butter in.

Set aside 3/4 c. of this mixture for the topping.

To the batter add the baking powder, salt, milk, vanilla, and egg yolks. Use a mixer to blend well.

Beat the egg whites for several minutes until firm (till they hold a peak, or are at least very foamy), then fold this into the batter.

Pour mixture into a 9×13 baking dish. Sprinkle the blueberries over top, then sprinkle the remaining topping over all.

Bake at 350 for 40-50 min, or until firm in center.

    Wow, that looks so good. Wonder if I could add peaches?

  • Melissa said:

    That looks great! It’s kind of like blueberry buckle, but it’s probably lighter because of the beaten egg whites.

  • Kendra at New Life On A Homestead (author) said:

    DFW… maybe? Maybe chopped peaches. Let me know if you try that, lol!!
