Blueberry Buckle

 Here's a treat for the middle of the week. It's called Blueberry Buckle, but really that's just a fun name for coffee cake! The recipe is for a square 8x8 pan...these pictures are from a time I doubled the recipe and threw it in a 9x13 pan.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix with spoon:

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine (really, butter all the way!)
1/4 cup shortening (in a pinch, use more butter!)
1 1/2  tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg

Spread in ungreased 8-inch square pan.

Sprinkle with:

1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) blueberries
  (I have used other types of berries, but blueberry is the best!)

Mix until crumbly:

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine (butter, please!)
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Sprinkle over berries!

Bake 45-50 minutes until golden brown (like top photo!) and toothpick inserted in cake's center comes out clean (my oven runs a little hot so I cook it a little less--you know your oven!)

I have baked this for years now...frequently taken it to work to share with family love's a summer regular in our house. 

Baking is just another way I feel creative and I love sharing what I bake! If I could serve you all up a piece, I would! But this is the best I can do!

Hope you enjoy!

(Sorry, blogger is not letting me get rid of this white space at the end of the post. Grr.....)
