Blueberry Betty

Don’t be tempted to make this blueberry betty with anything but fresh blueberries.

Yield: Serves 6.


  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
  • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup hot water


Rinse the blueberries and drain well. Toss melted butter or margarine with the crumbs. Combine the sugar, cinnamon and lemon rind.

Sprinkle one-third of the bread crumbs in the bottom of a well-buttered 1-1/2-quart baking dish. Cover with half the drained blueberries and sprinkle with half the sugar mixture. Repeat -- crumbs, blueberries and sugar. Top with the last third of the crumbs.

Combine the lemon juice and hot water and pour evenly over the top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Serve warm with sweetened whipped cream.
