These are sooooooo good! It was almost like a very easy blueberry pie when I served it warm over french vanilla ice cream. Definately a keeper. I plan to make this often and maybe even try it with some other kinds of fruits as well. Can you imagine this made with peaches?

I doubled the recipe then poured the cooked fruit into a 9x13 pan and dropped the batter ontop.Baked it for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.Kids finished the whole pan before it had a chance to cool totally.Next time I'm going to try different fruit combos.This was soo good!!
