Stir blueberries, raspberries, 3/4 cup sugar, and lemon juice into the cornstarch mixture; transfer to a cast-iron skillet and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

I tried this recipe on a whim since I had blueberries and raspberries about to go bad. I followed all the ingredients to a T and it turned out great! I didn't have a cast iron skillet so I cooked the berry mixture in a pan first and then transferred it to a dish where I scooped the topping on top of it. I feel the topping didn't cover as much of the berries as I would've liked since the berries were poking out from underneath all over the place but I may have made the scoops too big. Word of advice dish out small scoops to make sure you have enough to cover it all evenly. I would definitely do this recipe again; simple easy and verrrrrry good! Read More

These were tasty! I cut the recipe down to 4 servings and baked in ramekins. I used blackberries in place of the blueberries (because that's what I had on hand). Any berry would work well in these! I found these to be not too sweet which I liked. The tartness of the berries really shines through. Read More

This was super yummy! I will be making this again and again with a few modifications. The first time I made it I used 2 cups blueberries 3/4 cup raspberries and 3/4 cup blackberries. I cooked the fruit in a saucepan instead of a cast iron skillet and baked it in an 8x8 glass pan. It was good but here are a few changes I will make the next time I make it. I would cut the sugar in the filling down to 1/2 a cup instead of the 3/4. It was a little too sugary for my tastes. I would use brown sugar instead of white for the topping. I would also add some vanilla and/or cinnamon to the topping as well. Though the topping is yummy as is I think it could use a little more pizzazz. Overall this is a great recipe and it works with any berry! Yum! And bonus this can be made dairy free and even gluten free if you use a GF flour! Read More

Added frozen strawberries...no problem. The pre-boiling step really =helped it to hold together when done. Read More

Tried it and was wondering what to do with the 1/4 boiling water listed in the topping ingredients? With no one to ask I processed the dry ingredients and butter in my food processor and then poured in the 1/4 cup boiling water gradually. It lumped and then after proceeding with the berry filling mixture I placed spoonfuls of the "dough" on top and baked it. Turned out fine so I must have done the correct thing. Read More

Easy enough to make and a big enough hit that I've made in twice in two weeks. Great by itself or ala mode. Used home grown raspberries and u-pick local blueberries. Read More
