Blueberry Fields Forever

Another first for our family- blueberry picking. The best things in life really are the simplest. My love of all things blueberry making this one of the best ways to spend a rainy Saturday morning with my family. Here's one of my favorite ways to use them.

Blueberry Breakfast Cake
2 cups brown sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 can Grands refrigerated biscuits
1 1/2 sticks melted butter
1 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
3/4 cup sugar

Generously grease an 8x11.5-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Cut each biscuit into six pieces, and dip each one in melted butter and then coat with brown sugar mixture. Place in baking dish in a single layer. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the oats.
Combine blueberries and sugar in a bowl and toss to coat. Spoon over oats and biscuits and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 oats. Drizzle remaining melted butter on top. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and center is done.

Notes: To keep the calorie count down a bit I usually use the reduced fat biscuits, light butter, and splenda in this recipe with great success. Who knows if it helps all that much but it sure makes me feel like I can go back for 2nds!

  13. I appreciate the calorie cutting, its nice to know someone else is using splenda!

  15. Okay, I had high hopes of loosing a few pounds and then you go and post this recipe. I am SO making this and I don't plan on using Splenda!!
