1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

Blueberry Sauce:

To prepare blintz: Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan; set aside.
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, ricotta cheese, 2 egg yolks, 1 tablespoon sugar and vanilla until smooth; set aside.
In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to cream butter and remaining 1/3 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
In a small bowl, stir together flour and baking soda. In another bowl stir together yogurt and orange juice. Alternately add flour mixture and yogurt mixture to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Pour half the batter into the prepared pan. Spread the cream cheese filling over the batter, spreading evenly to the sides. Top with remaining batter. Bake 50 minutes or until golden brown.
To prepare Blueberry Sauce: Meanwhile, place blueberries in a medium saucepan. In a small bowl, stir together flour and sugar; add to the blueberries along with the water, stirring to combine. Bring to a boil and simmer until thickened.
To serve: Cut blintz into 12 servings; serve hot, topped with Blueberry Sauce.

Q- My husband and I just spent the most relaxing, pampered weekend at Sea Quest Bed and Breakfast near Yachats. The rooms were luxurious, the company fun and friendly and the breakfasts heavenly. Incredibly delicious was the Baked Cheese Blintz. It looked like a casserole, but tasted like a blintz. Maybe Elaine would part with that wonderful recipe if you asked. Thank you!

A- Elaine and George Ireland, owners of Sea Quest Bed and Breakfast, were flattered that you asked for their recipe. Their place, located six miles south of Yachats, is open year-round and boasts a sweeping view of the ocean.
