One of the highlights of being a mom who loves to cook, is the ability to whip up new recipes or find old time favorites to try. After a long uneventful  day, my boys and I decided to make something out of the pint of blueberries sitting in the refrigerator. We tried our hands on this amazing recipe and we loved every bite. The boys finished it all of course. This is definitely a great dessert to try, it’s not too sweet and it’s just right. It’s simple enough for beginners to whip up. We had it with vanilla icecream but you can simply eat with a cup coffee. Life’s Good!

Blueberry Buckle
1 stick butter
1 1/4 cups of sugar
1 egg
2 1/3 cups self rising flour or (2 1/3 flour mixed with 2 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 salt stirred well)
1/2 cup milk
2 cups blueberries
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cream half the stick of butter with 3/4 cup sugar. Beat in the egg. Add 2 cups of self rising flour or flour mix then add 1/2 milk.
Fold in washed blueberries. Pour batter into a greased 9×9 inch pan. Sprinkle the top with crumb topping made with fork or hand blending the remaining 4 tbsp of butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Bake for 35 minutes. You will see how the top buckles and understand its name.
The top would be crunchy and the inside very moist and slightly fluffy.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee or with vanilla icecream.
