Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Juicy plums and blueberries become a gorgeous topping of caramelized fruit when this cake is inverted onto a plate. (I’ve made this cake several times, and it’s a winner!) You can use any soft, ripe fruit instead of the plums, but the blueberries are a must.

Blueberry Crumble Bars

You’re going to love the quick 15-minute prep for these fruity bars. Blueberries love any kind of citrus, so try adding lemon zest along with the lemon juice to really bring out the happy partnership.

Chef John’s Blueberry Clafoutis

Say it with me: claw-foo-TEE. That translates into a simple baked custard packed with plump, juicy blueberries. So good in any language.

Blueberry Drop Cookies

Almond extract and lemon zest flavor these easy, cake-like cookies. They turn out quite soft, so store them with waxed paper between layers of cookies so they don’t stick together.

Blueberry-Lemon Pound Cake

This moist and lemony pound cake is easy to prep and simple to bake. Take the advice of several reviewers and dust the fresh blueberries with a little bit of flour before folding them into the batter to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the pan. (It really works!)
