Blueberries, also known as bilberries, whortleberries and hurtleberries are one of the few fruits native to North America. They are loaded with antioxidents and not only are they tasty, but good for you as well.

Ingredients 
Filling:
1 stick butter
1 tsp Lemon juice
4 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed and drained
1 cup sugar

Topping:
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup milk

Accompaniment: Fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream blueberries to garnish

Instructions 
To prepare the filling, preheat oven to 375°F. Place the butter in an 8×8 inch square glass baking dish (no substitutes) and melt the butter in the microwave.

In a mixing bowl, combine lemon juice and blueberries. Add the sugar and mix well. Add the blueberry mixture to the baking dish with the melted butter. Do not stir.

Make the topping by combining all of the topping ingredients in a small bowl. Pour this mixture over the blueberries and bake 45 minutes, or until brown. Good with peaches or blackberries
