  • 3 organic eggs
  • 1 ½ cups ricotta
  • 1 cup lemon Greek yogurt (I used Noosa brand.)
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ cup oil, canola or vegetable
  • 2 cups flour + 1 Tbl., all purpose, divided
  • 1 Tbl. baking powder
  • ¾ cup sugar + 1 Tbl., divided
  • 1/8 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 ½ cups blueberries, divided, fresh or frozen (thaw somewhat and pat dry with paper towels)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add each ingredient (eggs, ricotta, yogurt, lemon juice and oil) and whisk after individually adding each.
  2. Sift in two cups of flour, baking powder, three-fourths cup sugar and salt. Blend the mixture together. Add the buttermilk and blend in. Put the blueberries in a bowl and toss with one tablespoon of flour and sugar.
  3. Fold in four cups of the blueberries (and flour/sugar they were tossed in) with the batter. Pour the batter into a well-greased casserole dish.
  4. Top with the remaining blueberries. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean from the center. Remove to a baking rack and cool before slicing.
