Maple Blueberry Pudding Cake



You would be forgiven for thinking this is a somewhat ugly dessert . . .  but this is one dessert where you don't want to judge the book by it's cover, for it's fabulously delicious!

First you make a delectable blueberry, maple and cream base which is as simple as combing four ingredients together in a saucepan and bringing it to the boil.   That then gets poured into the base of a casserole dish.

 That then gets topped with a buttery cornmeal type of cake batter.  It's a bit thick for pouring, so just dollop it carefully on top of the hot blueberry mixture.

Pop it into the oven and half an hour later you are rewarded with the most scrumptious dessert ever.   Serve it warm with some softly whipped cream or a bit of vanilla ice cream on top.  Gorgeous darling . . .  simply gorgeous.
