blueberry breakfast

bluerries in basket

Actually, its a blueberry buckle recipe (from my mother-in-law) that we love, but we adopted the cute name our little man gave it when he was younger. Its one of our favorite summer treats with all the wonderful, fresh berries available now. I could go off on another tangent about picking wild ones when I was little, but we’ll just save that memory for another time. :)

cutest helper ever

Here is the world’s cutest kitchen helper. He is really just waiting to lick spoons, bowls, and beaters, but he will assist to pass the time. :)

Blueberry Buckle

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 c. flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. milk
  • 4 c. blueberries

Topping

  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2/3 c. flour
  • cinnamon to taste, we like a lot of it

350 degrees for one hour

blueberries in bowl

Do the usual, cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs. Sift together and add flour, salt, baking powder. Add a little bit of the milk after each addition of the dry ingredients. Mix this well. It will be thick. Fold in the blueberries.

dough in pan

Plop, literally, the dough in to a greased 9x13 pan. Fill in the holes the best you can. It will spread out beautifully when it bakes.

topping on buckle before baking

In a separate bowl, cut the butter into the rest of the topping ingredients. Sprinkle over the dough. It will seem like a lot, but its oh, so, yummy! I sprinkle by hand, to more evenly distribute the butter.

our pan

My favorite pan. The first wedding shower present I got. My mother-in-law ordered it for us. The first time I saw our names together, officially. Hard to believe that its almost been 11 years since we were married.

baked buckle in pan

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. You can see how much it raised and spread out. The top should be nice and brown and crusty, if you tap it.

Finished buckle on plate

It will be hot, but so what, its better warm. Cut a piece and enjoy. Or two pieces. You know, we call this “breakfast,” but we are perfectly willing to eat it at any time of day.

Baked Topping

And here is a look at the best part, the topping. I put this topping on my blueberry muffins too. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Yum! - This looks delicious. Love your little kitchen helper. Coleen (my granddaughter) is like that too. She "helps" but it's mainly to wait for the batter or licking the bowl/beaters too.

Wow! this has been a family favorite "forever" (50+ years). My brother had his wife double the topping for extra sweetness. Just love it! Thanks too for your inspiration.

I tried your recipe a couple weeks ago after picking some fresh blueberries and all I can say is YUMMY! I absolutely loved making and eating this. My family loved it too and now I am going to have to make it again. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
