What’s for Dessert? Blueberry Buckle

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on August 24, 2009 0 Comments

Many years ago, when I was still in school, my best girlfriend made this. I loved it, but I don’t think I’ve ever made it. Kroger had blueberries on sale, so Matt stocked up, and here we are!

Thank you, Red.

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 egg
1 t vanilla

1/2 cup buttermilk

2 cups flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, softened

Preheat oven to 375°. Spray an 8″ square pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together 3/4 cup sugar and butter til fluffy. Stir in egg and vanilla. Set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into sugar mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Fold in blueberries. Pour into prepared pan.

To make topping, combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, cinnamon and butter til butter is well incorporated. Sprinkle over cake batter.
