Classic Blueberry Buckle Recipe

This recipe came from my grandmother. As children, my sister and I remember going to Pennsylvania for blueberry picking. Mother taught us to pick only perfect berries, and those gems went into this wonderful recipe. —Carol Dolan Mt. Laurel, New Jersey

I liked everything about this recipe except I would definitely cut down on the sugar in the topping to 1/2 cup - I just felt it was a bit too sweet.

I doubled this recipe and put it in a 13 x 9" pan. This is by far the best buckle recipe I've ever tried! It is now my go-to during blueberry season. The top is super crunchy, and the cake light and delicious. Lots of compliments from my co-workers! My image stays strong--thanks Taste of home!!
