Very nice for supper. Double the serving size. (for gluten free see tips)

1 cup unbleached flour
1 1/2 Tbsp Ener-G baking powder
2/3 cup raw sugar (or 3/4 tsp Stevia + 1/4 cup flour)

3/4 cup water
3/4 cup soy milk

Pour on top of blueberries and bake at 375°F for 10 min. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake for 20-30 min. Cool and serve upside down. Flip each piece as you serve.

Tips n Techniques

You can substitute other White Cakes. For Gluten Free: Use Basic White Cake - gluten free - on top of blueberries.

For Sugar Free: use stevia.

*Add 1 cup more blueberries for 9 x 13 cake. This is more like a betty.

Try: Sliced mangos, pears, apples, or any other fruit.
