"Blueberry buckle is one of the first things I learned to bake as a teenager. Always make this with fresh blueberries for best results! Enjoy!" — Cristina

2 1/2 cups
unsalted butter, softened
Followed the recipe exactly except added 1/2 tsp vanilla to the butter/sugar/egg/milk combination, but that is a "given" in baking at my house. It was delicious! Cake was a wonderful complement to the fresh blueberries. Didn't take long and was easy to make. Great with a glass of milk!
This is one of those rare recipes that on its face are simple, yet yield elegant, tasty results. In other words, it’s a great recipe.
Let me add some comments/observations. Don't be fooled by the batter! It is stiff as noted in the description. You may think you've done something wrong, but the relative lack of liquid in proportion to the dry ingredients makes it that way. Just put the dough in the center of the pan and spread to the sides with a large spatula or back of a spoon. The cooking time (40 minutes) is just right and yields a wonderful texture.
Like most here, we "tweak" recipes. My only one I used was to substitute Turbinato for the granulated sugar in the topping. That was the only off recipe ingredient. It made a more crunchy top.
As for the results, it is a lovely cake. My wife, who was born and raised in the Canadian Maritimes where this is popular exclaimed "...this is home." That makes any cooks day! Thanks Christina!
I absolutely love this recipe! The only thing is there were more blueberries than flour??? I doubled the recipe and only used 3 cups of flour but people loved it just as much without all the blueberries. Thanks for posting!
I found this recipe while looking for a blueberry cobbler recipe. I really like this method of baking in a spring form pan.The finished product looks very appealing and slices nicely into neat wedges.
I followed the recipe exactly except I used blueberries I had frozen back in the summer (I let them thaw about half way). I had to bake it a bit longer because of this. The result is just sweet simple goodness. We had it as a dessert with
vanilla ice cream. Not overly rich and sweet. ...about like a muffin. It would be great as a brunch cake. The crispy crumb topping makes it special.
I absolutely LOVED, this recipe!!!!!!! It was so moist and fluffy, and it was definitely worth the time. One recommendation I have is that...don't be worried if the mixture looks and feels thick, it's supposed to be like that. Perfect, as is, no changes.
