Blueberry Buckle Recipe


Blueberry Buckle Recipe

Blueberry Buckle is a recipe that has been around a long time.  I really don’t know why it’s called a “buckle”.  It’s basically a crumb-topped coffeecake or cake that can be served for breakfast or as a dessert.  With the fresh blueberries coming out now, this recipe is a hit since it’s loaded with blueberries.

We’ve also posted a few other blueberry recipes, I’ve made them all and it’s tough to pick a favorite.
