An extraordinary Valtellina blueberry pie. Land of vines, but not only
Valtellina land of vines, recognized for the production of some varieties of apples and buckwheat, has been known for some years also for the production of excellent blueberries.
Today, the cultivation of Valtellina blueberries has reached a good level of production, and other varieties are being tested, to the point of deserving the name of blue valley.
Blueberries are, for all intents and purposes, counted among the typical products and are used for the preparation of pies and cakes such as the simple and incredibly good one, with buckwheat flour and local blueberry jam or, in season, a compote of fresh fruits and sugar.
100 g of buckwheat flour
150 g of 00 flour
150 g of hazelnut flour
300 g of sugar
100 g of melted butter
1 sachet of yeast
1 jar of blueberry jam
Beat the eggs vigorously with the sugar, add the melted butter. Incorporate the flour and baking powder gently with a wooden spoon. Pour into a cake pan, previously buttered and floured and bake at 150 ° for 45 minutes. Remove it from the oven when cooked, cut into two disks and distribute a generous layer of jam. Cover with the second disk and sprinkle with plenty of icing sugar. You can further enrich the dessert by covering it with a light layer of whipped cream and fresh blueberries.
