We Have Some Delicious Blueberry Recipes Just for You!
We love blueberries! Each year we drive to the Holland area in southwest Michigan and pick tons of blueberries.
Most of them go in the freezer to eat throughout the year. But we have a few favorite recipes that we always make with some of the berries. Give it a try – the shake is super easy, everyone loves the buckle, and the blueberry peach trifle is a little more on the fancy side, all three are delicious.
Blueberry Peach Trifle
2 cups of fresh blueberries
3 peaches – sliced or diced
1 purchased pound cake
1 package of softened cream cheese
3 packages of the 3.3-ounce size of instant white chocolate pudding mix
2 ½ cups milk – either skim or 2% ** Note – if the mixture is too stiff add more milk until you get the consistency you want.
Peel and slice the peaches and sit aside with the cleaned blueberries. Cut the pound cake into bite-size squares and set aside. To prepare the pudding mixture, combine the cream cheese, pudding mix, and milk in a large mixing bowl (think splatters) and use your hand mixer to beat until it is smooth and lump free.
Then begin by layering the 4 items (pudding mix, pound cake, peaches, blueberries – keep the pudding and cake next to each other, so the cake softens — store covered in the refrigerator.
Delicious Blueberry Shake
1 cups frozen or fresh blueberries
1 ½ cup vanilla bean ice cream
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Whirl all the ingredients together in the blender until well mixed. I do not add any sugar to this recipe but you can if you prefer. This should make enough for two small shakes or one big one! Top with whip cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
¾ cup of sugar
¼ cup butter
2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
½ cup milk
2 cups fresh blueberries
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup flour
¼ cup butter – softened
Cream the butter and sugar together. Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder together and then slowly add to the sugar/butter mixture along with the egg and milk. The batter is kind of stiff. Once it is well mix fold the fresh blueberries into the batter. I have made this with frozen blueberries but it takes longer to bakes and doesn’t turn out so well.
Put batter into an 8 or 9 inch greased baking pan.
Combine the crumb topping ingredients, using a fork work the ingredients until they are well mixed but crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the batter.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Use a toothpick to test for doneness.
