A delicious addition to your breakfast table, or enjoy a slice as an afternoon snack.  Fresh berries work well, but if they aren't available or in season, try this recipe with (thawed) frozen berries.  Either way, it's sure to please!


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt, non-fat vanilla
  • 3 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon lemon peel (grated, yellow only)
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh (or frozen unsweetened) blueberries
  • Topping Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
