Blueberry Skillet Custard Pie With Lemon Glaze

Rustic Blueberry Skillet Dessert

Thanks to the right mix of sunny days and gentle rain fall, we had a bumper crop of blueberries in North Georgia this year. That meant lots of plump sweet berries to munch on at the bushes, toss atop a bowl of cereal, whip up in a smoothie, and add to pancake batter.

Blueberries are easy to grow, easy to freeze, and good for easy jam recipes. This is all good news since blueberries are one of the top 10 superfoods and can be pricey at the grocery store.

The freezer is now stocked and a few jars of blueberry jam are put away.  And we enjoyed a few tasty blueberry desserts along the way like a rich blueberry-peach Pavlova and healthy blueberry-banana swirl pops. 

The blueberries were ripe just in time for adding to my patriotic red, white, and blue pops for the Fourth of July. 

It’s always good to try something new. This year it was a blueberry skillet custard pie, a rustic dessert baked in a cast iron skillet. It was delicious and really easy to make. Just blend all ingredients except the berries in a blender and pour the batter into a buttered cast iron skillet.

I love the taste of blueberry together with lemon so I added a lemon glaze after baking, but this is optional. The blueberry skillet pie was delicious.  Thanks to a bumper crop and a freezer full of blueberries, one will grace my holiday tables this year.
