Blueberry Buckle Recipe

Blueberry Buckle Recipe


What is a buckle you might ask? A buckle is an old-fashioned, single-layer cake with a streusel-type topping. The batter is quite dense. As the cake bakes, the batter sinks to the bottom of the pan, which makes the streusel buckle on top. In other words, a coffee cake or one giant blueberry muffin. Delicious, especially when you use flavor-packed Sunset Valley Organics blueberries!

Cook Time

Active Time: 20 minutes prep

Leave an additional 30 minutes (if you need to clean the blueberries - Sunset Valley Organics' berries are always precleaned for you).

Inactive Time: 1 hour (baking)


Cake ingredients:

2 cups and 1-2 Tbsp of sifted (to coat the blueberries) all purpose flour, separated
2 teaspoons baking poweder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
2 cups Sunset Valley Organics blueberries

Topping ingredients:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


1 Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease an 8-inch springform pan. Set aside.
2. Sift together 2 cups of flour, the baking powder and the salt. Set aside.
3. Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg.
4. Add the 1/3 of flour mixture and mix slightly. Add 1/3 of milk and combine slightly.
5. Repeat step 4, alternating between flour and milk, until the flour mixture and milk are all combined.
6. Toss the beries with the remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour (to separate and scatter evenly throughout the batter) and fold in. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Set aside.
7. Combine ingredients for topping with a fork to make crumbly mixture. Sprinkle this over the batter.
8. Bake for one hour, then test for doneness by gently inserting a fork. If it does not come out clean, give the cake another 5 to 10 minutes in the oven.
9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
10. When the cake has cooled, run a knife around the edges and lift the cake out of the pan. Serve with whipped cream.
