Blueberry Buckle

Blueberry buckle!! Blueberry what?? I’m usually met with confusion when I mention this recipe but I promise if you have it once, it’s one you won’t forget! Similar to a classic coffee cake, this buckle is perfect with coffee and can be a real crowd pleaser at brunch!

I am so excited to share this recipe with all of you because it’s something we have been making in my family for years.  This is probably my Dad’s absolute favorite thing to bake and when it’s blueberry season he would sometimes make 2, 3 or even 4 buckles at a time.

My Dad has always followed his sacred Betty Crocker cookbook recipe (a favorite of mine too!) but I couldn’t help myself from adjusting it a bit!  I actually can’t even find the original recipe linked online anywhere so if you want it you need to buy the old school red and yellow cook book!  In the meantime- try mine!  I really just doubled the butter (because.. obviously..) and added some vanilla.  You could also top this with an easy icing or powdered sugar- YUM.

As fall approaches (HECK YES) I hope you find time to try this recipe, snuggle up and enjoy!

PS- why I didn’t take a picture of the finished product the last 3x I’ve made this in the last month, I NEVER KNOW.  So please enjoy this picture of blueberries and JUST TRUST it’s gorgeous.
