I've made this one with raisins and also with dried blueberries. Both were very good. Don't be tempted to make it in a smaller pan, it really bakes up best in a 9x13. I think I'll try fresh blueberries next time, as I felt the dried ones didn't impart much blueberry flavor. Still, the kids love it, it's healthy and portable, and it's easy to use all organic ingredients if that's your bent.
