This is a very easy dish to make and will help keep your kitchen cool this summer since the use of your oven is not required. Here is what you will need:
- 1 bag of Sturdiwheat Shortcake Mix
- 4 c. fresh blueberries
- 1 c. water
- 3/4 c. sugar
Step 1. Pick through blueberries and remove any shriveled or mushy berries.
Step 2. Combine blueberries, sugar, and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
Step 3. Just before the 20 minutes is up add the melted butter and water to the shortcake mix as directed on the bag and scoop the shortcake batter into the blueberry mixture about 1/4 to 1/3 cup at a time.
Step 4. Cover sauce pan and let simmer another 20 minutes. Then remove from heat and serve warm.
Additional serving suggestions:
- Add 2 tbsp. orange zest to shortcake batter for an added citrus flavor
- Very nice a la mode!
