  • 3 to 4 drops Fiori di Sicilia herbal extract
  • 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup tapioca pearls or pie filling enhancer
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine berries, sugar, extracts, and tapioca pearls, and set aside.

  • Remove dish from oven and pour batter over melted butter. Top with sugared berries, spreading fruit out to edges of dish.
  • Return dish to oven and bake, uncovered, for 37 to 40 minutes, until fruit is bubbling and batter is golden-brown.
