Blueberry Slump

My Texas Mountain Laurel's are starting to bloom, they are sooo pretty.They are an incredible blue purple color and only bloom for about a week. They kind of smell like grape cotton candy. I know right...ummm.
Blue must be my color this month since I have been into blueberries lately which is a little weird since I usually don't like them. I  don't like them raw...but I love them warm and sugared up.
I found this "Slump" somewhere and it looked so pretty I had to try it. Slumps are kinda like cobblers, crumbles, grunts or even clafoutis. This came out almost cake like, the texture was perfect, the blueberries were perfect. Delicious! I am sure cherries or peaches would be incredible too....I will put those on my list :)
1/4 c flour
1/4 c water
1 tsp cornstarch
2c blueberries
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
batter:
1 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c brown sugar
2/3 c buttermilk
1 egg
1 egg yolk
4 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 and lightly butter 4 ramekins, place on baking sheet and set aside.
In a small saucepan, add 1/4 c sugar, 1/4 c water and cornstarch and bring to a boil. Stir until sugar and cornstarch have dissolved. Add blueberries and simmer for about 3-4 minutes over med-low heat until berries are soft and bursting. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Set aside.
Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and brown sugar together. Using a different bowl, whisk buttermilk, egg, melted butter and vanilla. Add flour mix to egg mix - whisk until blended.
Scoop out a spoonful of blueberry mix into each of your ramekins, dollop batter evenly into each of the blueberry servings. Spoon remaining blueberry sauce over batter.
Bake 20-24 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
