This simple French dessert recipe is from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. We like it because it really highlights the delicious fruits, which are cooked in a light batter that shows them off rather than taking the credit for itself.
3 cups fresh blueberries
1 ¼ cups milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
½ cup flour
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Use a blender to combine everything except for the blueberries.
Pour ¼ inch of the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate.
Place in the oven for 5 or so minutes, or until the bottom has set slightly.
Remove from the oven, spread the blueberries across the dish, and pour over the rest of the batter. Smooth over the top.
Place in the middle of the preheated oven and bake for about 1 hour, or until set. It will puff and brown, and a knife inserted into the middle will come out clean.
Sprinkle the top with powdered sugar before serving.
