Blueberries, Anyone?

Admidst the busy-ness and chaos of the past month or two, fresh blueberries have been available at the grocery store, much to our pleasure.  For some reason, maybe because it's really tasty, I've homed in on this old recipe for Blueberry Buckle.  It's quick and easy and guaranteed to add a special touch to your breakfast table.

Blueberry Buckle (Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook~1962)
1/2 cup shortening
1 /2 cup sugar
1 well-beaten egg
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour (You can also substitute gluten free flour.)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh blueberries (frozen should work, too)

Cinnamon Crumbs: Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup sifted flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in 1/4 cup butter till crumbly.

Thoroughlyt cream shortening and sugar; add egg and mix well.  Sift flour, baking powder, and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk.  Pou into well-greased 11 1/2x7x1 1/2-inch pan.  Top with blueberries.  Sprinkle Dinnamon Crumbs over berries.

Bake at 350 degrees 45-50 minutes or until done and golden brown.  Cut into squares and serve warm.  Makes 8-10 servings.  (I tried cutting the recipe in half and used a eight inch square pan successfully also.)

Enjoy!!!

I don't think I've ever had blueberry buckle, but it does sound and look yummy. I have wonderful memories of picking wild blueberries with my Dad and uncle in northern WI in my youth. We ate alot of them with milk and sugar, and Mom made blueberry pie for Dad. I'll have to give your buckle a try! Hugs, Finn
P.S. thanks for stopping by and reading Ebby's story.
