Cooking Light published this in their book, Five Star Recipes--The Best of 10 Years, and their staff voted this as one of their top five recipes from the first 10 years. It is very, very good, either for breakfast, brunch, or as dessert, warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  1. Beat margarine and cream cheese at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy; gradually 1 cup sugar, beating well. Add egg, and beat well.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into margarine mixture. Stir in vanilla, then fold in berries.

I used to make this recipe a lot. It's delicious and always got rave reviews. Then I lost the recipe, and I've been looking for it. I'm so glad to have found it again! I love it jam packed with blueberries.

I used blueberry's and it was really good. I did cut back on the topping as others suggested. I only used a teaspoon of cinnamon and sugar. I also used 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of splenda. Next time I might cut down on the blueberry's too. We all enjoyed this. I only cooked mine for 45 minutes.
