Here in western Pennsylvania, we always have an abundance of juicy, delicious blueberries in the summertime. I like to use them most often in this old-fashioned dessert. It's my family's favorite - and mine, too, since it's tasty as well as easy to make. I always freeze some berries with this recipe in mind.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 12, 2012

Cake was a bit dry. Topping was tasty though. Maybe add some sour cream to batter for moisture.

I agree that it was very dry. There are other blueberry buckle recipes that work.

MY REVIEW

Nice flavor, but VERY dry. It almost seems like 60 minutes was too long to bake it.

This recipe was so good. My husband liked it so much I made it three times in one week. I'm trying it today with splenda.
