Blueberry Buckle

Blueberry Buckle is one of those things that I’ve never attempted to make because Hubby speaks so highly of his mother’s Blueberry Buckle. I had never even had Blueberry Buckle before making it and I have to say it’s very yummy. Hubby thought it was a dessert. I thought it was more like a coffee cake with fruit in it.

The day I made this, I sat down to watch some Good Eats off the DVR. And what do you know, my boy Alton Brown made blueberry buckle. And what do you know, AB said that buckle is in fact coffee cake with fruit in it (turns out Hubby thought coffee cake was coffee flavored).

This recipe comes from my mother in law. I have no idea where she got it from. I do love getting recipes from her because she scribbles them in short hand onto a scrap piece of paper.

    These are amazing. I make them for everything, bake sales, holidays and potlucks, and you can easily substitute whatever berries you have on hand. I’ve done mixed berries, raspberry and blackberry with this recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!
