"This is still just as delicious if made without the fruit and it's perfect for a weekend brunch. Make sure to use only fresh blueberries for this. Plan ahead there is a 8-24 hour chilling time"

Company was coming and I wanted to have a special brunch before their departure so I chose this and I am so glad I did! This was just perfect. Sweet, fruity, and the streusel brought it to another level!

I make different things for breakfast all the time so we don't get sick of the same old thing. When I discovered this I made it up ahead and let it sit for about 14 hours. I think the longer you let it sit, the better the overall flavor. It was so good with blueberries now that they are in season. I increased the blueberries to 2 cups to finish up the quart, and it wasn't too much.
