Moist Blueberry Buckle

I used to buy baskets of delicious blueberries from a man who had numerous bushes. One of my co-workers gave me this recipe, and it's become a favorite.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk

Directions

  • In a bowl, cream the shortening and sugar. Beat in egg; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add alternately to creamed mixture with milk. Fold in blueberries. Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking dish.

Editor's Note
If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

    I made this with the shortening and then again with 1/4 cup butter. I thought it was slightly better with the butter. I also added 1 tsp. vanilla

    I loved this. It isnt moist like a blueberry muffin. But not hard like a scone. Just very good texture and can pick up the slice and enjoy it. I have shared it with some of my friends and they love it too.

    This is an easy, quick recipe that is moist and very good. Careful not to over-bake.
