Kitchenware Required

  • a 9"x9"x2" baking pan
  • 3 medium size mixing bowls
  • an electric mixer
  • a pastry blender
  • a wooden spoon



Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 20 min
Yields: 9 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, (divided)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar, (divided)
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and grease the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of your baking pan. Set the greased pan aside.
  2. In one of your medium size mixing bowls combine 2 cups of the all-purpose flour, the baking powder, and the salt. Set this bowl aside.
  3. In another medium size mixing bowl beat the shortening for 30 seconds with an electric mixer set to medium speed. Add 3/4 cup of the sugar, and resume beating at medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg, and beat well. Add the flour mixture and milk (alternately) a bit at a time to this bowl, and beat well after each addition.
  4. Use a wooden spoon to transfer the batter into your greased baking pan. Sprinkle the fresh blueberries over the batter.
  5. In your third medium size mixing bowl mix the remaining half cup of sugar, half cup of all-purpose flour, and ground cinnamon together. Use a pastry blender to cut the butter into this mixture until it reaches the consistency of coarse crumbs. Sprinkle this mixture on top of the fresh blueberries.
  6. Place the pan in your preheated 350 degree oven, and bake the Blueberry Buckle until it is golden in color (approximately 50-60 minutes).
  7. Allow the cake to cool just a bit before cutting it into 9 squares. Serve your homemade Fresh Blueberry Buckle warm, and enjoy!

      How did it get the name "buckle?" It doesn't seem obvious.
