Puzzle Pudding

On Christmas morning I hate to have my mom or dad spend too much time in the kitchen making breakfast. It's suppose to be a day to relax, and yes, cooking is a way to relax for some, but we all need a break sometimes. Especially when we have to feed 10 people. That's why I love breakfast casseroles.
For as long as I can remember my mom has made this berry-filled breakfast dish. She just follows the super easy steps, pops it in the oven, and then it goes just as quickly as it came. The great thing is that we all get to eat a hot breakfast at the same time. It is a much loved recipe by our family and those close to us. I know that one day I will be making this same exact recipe for my family.

The fresh berries make this dish beautiful even before baking!

At a young age, I learned this smell means "breakfast is ready!"

And piece by piece it leaves our home.

Ingredients
2 lg. eggs
2 c. of buttermilk
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. of flour
1 tsp. baking powder
5 c. of berries (your choice, we like a combination of blueberries and raspberries)
3/4 c. of brown sugar
Heavy cream (optional)

Recipe
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, sugar and vanilla until well blended.
3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture in small batches, whisking well after each addition.
4. Wash berries, and dry them well. Spray a 9.5 by 11 baking dish, and pour the berries into the dish making sure they are evenly distributed.
5. Pour the batter over the fruit, covering most of the fruit with batter. Don't worry about covering it all.
6. Sprinkle brown sugar over the batter, and put in the oven for about an hour or until the batter is set.
7. This dish is delicious served warm or cool. We like to serve ours with fresh fruit and a little drizzle of heavy cream on top.
