Tasty Treats Thursday

Each Thursday I'll be sharing a little something for you to whip up in your kitchen. There are only a couple of rules. First, it has to be easy. Second, it has to be delicious!!! So, straight from my aunt's blueberry farm to your table:

The Blueberry Sonker

* 2 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed
* 1 cup all-purpose flour * 1 cup sugar * 1 egg
* 1 stick butter (use real butter for best results)

(frozen blueberries are okay, but your local farmers markets should be teeming with fresh ones this time of year!!)

In an 8x8 baking dish spread the rinsed blueberries. Add a little water, maybe 1/8 cup, and sprinkle a little sugar over the berries. If you don't have a square baking dish, go for a 9x13.

Mix together the flour and sugar. Add the egg and blend with the flour mix.

It'll take on the consistency of cornmeal and be lumpy and all the flour and sugar won't mix completely, but it's OK. Spread the flour mix over the blueberries.

Melt the stick of butter. Drizzle the melted butter over the flour mixture. Don't worry about covering every last inch of the flour/sugar mixture. It will be fine.
Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees until it's golden brown for about 45 minutes. You'll know it's almost done when it begins permeating the whole house with the sweet smell of warm blueberries!
If you want to really treat yourself, grab some yummy fresh churned vanilla ice cream to top it with while it is still warm from the oven. I don't have any today, but what a delicious dessert!!!

This recipe can also be used with any other fresh fruit- peaches, blackberries, cherries, raspberries... all would make delightful sonkers!
