Great recipe! However, instead of using 1 full cup of sugar over the blueberries, I only used 1/2 cup. I think I might use 1/4 cup next time as it was still quite sweet for me. I loved it!

My kids and I were looking for some dessert that we could make with some blueberries that were in our fridge. This was easy to make with 2 kids, and turned out great!! The only thing that we changed was using butter in place of the shortening. Will make again.

Fantastic! We're in the Annapolis Valley and blueberries are just coming into season, so this was a lovely way to ring in the new blueberry season! I had to make a couple of changes - I had no white sugar so I had to substitute Splenda. Good to know I can make this for my father in law, who is diabetic. Also, I only used 1/2 the splenda on the blueberries as a whole cup seemed too much and I was right on - it was a lovely combination of sweet/tart. I also used buttermilk instead of regular milk. The grunt was so delicious served with homemade vanilla ice cream out on our front porch looking at the tide going out. Perfection.
