Blueberry Buckle

Hey everybody!  Sorry for the crazy posting schedule this summer & i know this post is a little late! Life has been pretty insane so I’m afraid my blogging has suffered a bit! – During this time away though, I did have a chance to go blueberry picking, and once i got home i was super excited to try this recipe that my friend gave me! It turned out pretty amazing; so i hope you all like it as much as i do! 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1Tsp. Vanilla
  • 3/4 cup Sugar (i mixed half brown sugar with the regular)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Butter (room temp.)
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 2 Tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 cup Milk (use part buttermilk or cream if you have it!)
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 2 Cups Blueberry’s (you can also use strawberry’s , raspberry’s etc…)

Crumb Topping:

  • 1/3 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 stick melted Butter

Directions: Cream together the vanilla, sugar, egg, and butter in a big bowl until smooth. Add the dry ingredients, then finally pour in the sour cream and milk. Now before you go adding the berries in, your going to want to toss them with just enough flour to lightly coat them. This will help to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the pan. Next pour into your pan, this is the part where you’ll add the topping crumb mix, and then slip it into a pre-heated oven. The  approx. bake time for this recipe is 45-60 minuets. So just keep an eye on the oven once it has been in for 45 mins, then poke a knife into the pan and see if it comes out clean – when i does, the blueberry buckle is ready for you to take out and enjoy!  🙂

Tip: the Crumb Topping recipe is just what i used this time, but you could defiantly change it up however if you have a better idea then mine! lol  – Please leave me a comment below if you do! 🙂

...Happy Baking & Bon Appètit!
