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
Spread in ungreased 8-inch square pan.
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 buddies...my family love it...it'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!
