You can use almost any combination of fresh berries in this dessert. Try cherries, blackberries, or a mixture of all three.
6 cups blueberries
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup regular oats
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 1/2 tablespoons chilled butter or stick margarine, cut into small pieces
2 cups vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; spoon into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine 2/3 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon, and cut in the butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over the blueberry mixture. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Top each serving with 1/4 cup frozen yogurt.
Note: Topping may also be made in the food processor. Place 2/3 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon in a food processor, and pulse 2 times or until combined. Add butter; pulse 4 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal.
This is my husband's absolute favorite desserts and he usually doesn't like fruity desserts. I usually half the recipe and bake in individual ramikin bowls so each has their own right out of the oven. I just bake until the topping is lightly browned and crisp. I also add sliced almonds to the topping which gives it a bit of crunch. I have also made it using a combination of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries which is also delicious! A must try dessert!
For over 10 years, this has been our family's favorite dessert. My son recently moved out, and he and his girlfriend asked me for the recipe so they could make it. Forget the ala mode part. Just make this and enjoy. I find that it works best in the 11 X 7 pan, which you can find in most supermarkets. It's about 2 or 3 pints of blueberries. This is fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. I have never served this to anyone who didn't like it.
