“I had some nectarines that needed to be consumed and I had just picked 2 cups of blueberries. And I was in the mood to bake. That NEVER happens! So this is what I came up with. It's not too sweet so if you really like sugar just increase it a bit. Can be served hot with a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream or room temperature with a dollop of whipped cream.*Today I altered the topping ingredients to include a 1/2 cup of crushed dried cereal. I wanted a little crunch so I added some rice crispies once and another time added special K. It is not required, just a nice addition.”
