Cake-Topped Blueberry Dessert

3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 T butter

3 T shortening

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 tsp grated orange peel

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup orange juice

In a saucepan, combine the blueberries, brown sugar and butter; cook for 5 minutes or until saucy. Pour into an 8″ square baking dish coated with Pam. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Beat in egg and orange peel. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with orange juice, beating just until combined.

Drop batter by spoonfuls over blueberry mixture. Bake at 350 for 30-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm.
