Blueberry Buckle with Lemon Sauce Recipe

Blueberry Buckle with Lemon Sauce Recipe

THIS recipe is a family favorite, served warm as dessert, plain or with a scoop of ice cream. My family also likes it cold as a coffee cake. But the lemon sauce topping makes this traditional dessert a little different, enhancing the flavor of the blueberries.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:9 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, milk and butter; add to dry ingredients just until moistened. Spread into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Top with blueberries.
