  • Prepare buckle: beat sugar and butter in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Beat in eggs. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into creamed butter mixture, alternating with milk, until batter is just combined; fold in blueberries. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Prepare topping: combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Cut in cold butter using a pastry blender or 2 knives until topping is crumbly. Sprinkle topping over batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool buckle on a wire rack.

Because I grow blueberries, I’m always on the hunt for a good blueberry recipe and this one is very good. This makes a wonderful blueberry cake that has wonderful flavor and texture. The only changes I made were to add a little vanilla and I extended the baking time. Read More

Batter was so thick I could not work with it. Needs either less flour or not milk to make the right consistency. Read More

My momma would make me blueberry buckle every year for my July birthday. When The Lord suddenly took her home a few years ago,the recipe went with her. I've been searching for & baking many Blueberry Buckle recipes. Think I have finally found a keeper! Will definitely be making this again. Thank you ChefGary for submitting this recipe ~ you have brought back many wonderful memories :-) Read More

Followed the recipe exactly but scaled down for an 8x8 pan. It was lovely and a great use for extra blueberries! Read More

My family loved this. I used 3/4 cup white sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar instead and it made a nice crispy topping. The only thing I think detracted from it was the amount of flour. Even after baking I could still smell the flour when we ate it. Read More

If you are looking for more of a det cakey buckle you might like this. I followed the recipe to a T including only not overmixing and took mine out of the oven at 38 minutes to play it safe. I still find it over risen somewhat dry and crumbly. Not horrible but there are much better recipes out there in my opinion. Read More
