A friend of mine who lives up north and grows her own blueberries developed this when she decided to go on a diet.

Top Review by Limechiffon

The recipe didn't come out as neat as it sounds for me-- the yogurt/jello mix was very thin (not spoonable) and when poured into the pan, the cake on the bottom floated to the top. Also, cutting the cake as directed didn't leave enough to cover the bottom of the pan. It came out looking very strange. That said, it tastes great, even without making the sauce. This is the same exact version on the Blueberry Council website.
