  • 3 cups ripe fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar divided
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
  • 1 cup almond milk can use regular but almond is yum in this for some reason


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Generously butter a 1.8-liter baking dish. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl add blueberries, lemon zest, and 1/4 cup sugar.
  • Toss to coat the blueberries in sugar, while mashing a few blueberries so that they release juices and create a light syrup. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar.
  • Add butter, almond milk and vanilla extract, if using.
  • Stir gently just until flour is combined. The batter will be a bit lumpy which is perfect.
  • Pour batter into prepared dish.
  • Spoon the blueberries in a single layer on top of batter (do not stir blueberries in)
  • Shake the dish gently so the blueberries settle into the batter a little.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the middle is set. (Be careful not to overbake)
  • Let cool for 5-10 minutes.
