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.

      I could totally justify eating them for breakfast. They have oats too!

    I love using fresh berries in cakes and breads – I don’t know why I have never tried them in a cookie! Yours look delicious, thanks for the inspiration!

      Any time! It’s rare to see fresh fruit in cookies.

    I never would have though of putting fresh blueberries into cookies…I gravitate toward scones/muffins/cake, but these just may have convinced me to try cookies!

      I know – you just never see them in cookies. Definitely give these a shot.

    LOVE the idea of fresh blueberries in a cookie like this. Have any tipes to keep from smashing the blueberries when adding them? 🙂 Pinning now!

      Thanks for pinning this 🙂 Just be careful when you stir the berries in. They shouldn’t smash unless you’re really heavy handed.

    Had to comment on these, I made some earlier in the week as I had some fresh blueberries to use up – they were so easy and quick to make and delicious. Definitely worth a go.

      So glad you made them and enjoyed them. I love an easy cookie recipe!
