Moist Blueberry Buckle Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:9 servings


  • 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
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed


  • 1. 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.
  • 2. For topping, combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or cooled. Yield: 9 servings.
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."
