Had some cherries in the freezer so I made this for dessert. Wow! It is so good and easy too. The batter comes out like a creamy custard. Thenks Chef John for the wonderful recipe

Made this last week for our anniversary breakfast on the deck, perfect weather, mimosas and the start to a beautiful day. Anyway, went by Chef John's recipe exactly except used a 9 inch baking dish, and it was perfect. Easy, quick and delicious. Not "eggy", but custardy. Do NOT overcook this. Mine had a tiny bit of dryness on the very bottom of the casserole dish, but that was ok. We are having company tomorrow for brunch and this is going to be the star of the morning for sure!!!!

I made this recipe exactly as the the video shows, except for my substitution of vanilla bean paste for vanilla extract. It was divine!!! The flavors are subtle and delicate. The custard is moist and perfectly sweetened. Just as Chef John states the fresh berries really shine, which is what I hoped for most. To make it ooze decadence I would top it with vanilla sauce.

I've been making this recipe off and on for a number of years. First hear of it on Iron Chef by Cat Cora. Used Cherries. I have since over the years used all kinds of fruits and mixtures, depending on what I have on hand. Lemon or orange zest kicks it up a notch as well.

Just made this for dinner party, it's so easy and delicious ! I didn't have blueberry but had frozen raspberry, and worked very well.

This is absolutely divine! Made it for a party and it was gone in seconds with people asking if there was anymore left!

Made this, and served with ice cream for 3 kids. They all had seconds, and ate 3/4 of the pan themselves! This reminds me of an impossible pie but with blueberries. So if you like the "egginess" of impossible pie, as I do, this will not be too eggy. I will be sure to make this every year during blueberry season!
