Barbecued Blueberry Dessert

This simple and delicious version of a down-east dessert is “baked” on the barbecue. Serve warm with ice cream or frozen yogurt.

4 cups (4 L) fresh Ontario Blueberries
1/3 cup (75 mL) orange juice
1/4 cup (50 mL) Ontario Liquid Honey
1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon

Topping:
1 cup (250 mL) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated sugar
2 tbsp (25 mL) cornmeal
2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) grated orange rind
1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
1 Ontario Egg
2 tbsp (25 mL) butter, melted and cooled

Place blueberries in ungreased 8-inch (2 L) square metal cake pan (or use double thickness disposable foil pans). Pour orange juice over blueberries. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Topping:

In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cornmeal, baking powder and orange rind. In small bowl, whisk together milk, egg and butter; stir into flour mixture until combined. Spoon evenly over blueberries. Place on indirect heat of 350°F (180°C) grill. Close lid and bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving.
