    Can this be made with frozen blueberries with similar results. Blueberry season is over.

    I Love it, but I make some changes: black sugar, oatmeal instead of half of the flour, and the result is a delicious and health recipe. many thanks, Ana Lucia

    I just finished making this recipe for the umpteenth time, and It continues to be an all-time family favorite, for sure. It is easy to make, so moist, and delicious. We like to eat it for breakfast with coffee. Today, I made a dozen muffins from the recipe- instead of baking it in a pan- just bake for 18 minutes. I have made this many times to gift to others.

    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!!
