- 3 T unsalted butter, divided
- 1 t ground cinnamon
- 1 pint blueberries, washed and dried
- 8 slices raisin or cinnamon bread
Melt 2 T of butter in a pan over low heat and stir in the cinnamon. Add the blueberries, and apples if using, and stir well to coat. Cook gently until blueberries and apples are soft, about 2-3 minutes.
Preheat the broiler and line the broiler pan with foil. Arrange the bread in the broiler pan and lightly toast on both sides – watching carefully that it does not brown or burn. Brush the bread with the remaining 1 T butter. Top each slice of toast with a spoonful of fruit, dividing the fruit evenly among the toasts. Broil just until the fruit begin to brown, again watching carefully. Serve immediately. Makes 8 toasts.
