Blueberry Buckle

We're helping mom make blueberry buckle and she says that we're the best helpers ever!
Toss me another one, mom!
Blueberry Buckle

Cream by hand 1/4 cup shortening, 3/4 cup sugar and 1 egg. Add 1/2 cup milk.

Sift together 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Gently fold in 1 1/2 cups blueberries. Spread this mixture into a greased 9 X 13" pan.

Now for the crumb topping - mix together 1/4 cup shortening, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/3 cup flour.

Sprinkle the crumb topping on top of the blueberry mixture and pop it into a 350 degree oven for approx 25 minutes.

Yum - I love raw batter!
Twenty-five minutes later~
We're the official taste testers!
Please say a prayer for our buddy, Cecil. He's the dogging on our sidebar up at the very top! He's having surgery today on his eyes and our paws are crossed that this surgery will make him see again! Maybe you could stop by Mackie's blog and lend your support, please!

So until next time...................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Ruby said...

What a crazed picture of you, Mitch! I only saw the little blueberry later, didn't know what you were after.

I guess buckle is somewhere between a cobbler and a cake - it sure looks good.


Dexter said...


We have blueberries here on bushes (not flying through the air). I sneak eat some of them when nobody is looking.

I will visit your pal and lend my Mango support.


Mack said...

Blueberries? I've never tasted them - but boy that cake looks like heaven on earth!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

Our Mom doesn't care too much for blueberries, but we think she should try this buckle recipe - she might just change her mind.

Our paws are crossed for Cecil and we are sending pawsitive Scottie vibes his way.

Good evening m & m
The garden of July is very beautiful.
The flower can bloom, and spend colorful time.
It seems to be able to use it also for the flower arrangement.

Emerald and how wonderful sound.
It is flea hunt and tick's medicines.
Ume tyan is used.
The effect is slowly one month.
It seems to exceed summer.

The blueberry buckle seems to be very delicious.
I want also to eat. :D

Cowspotdog said...

that is great action shot of you chasing the blueberry but you do look funny with that crazy look. Of coarse the best part of any cooking is being the taste tester...especially when you have to have a couple of sample just to make sure it is yummy

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

The blueberry buckle looks delicious. Papa picked fresh blueberries and raspberries today. Mama loves fresh blueberries - they are her favorite fruit.

We love the picture of you catching the blueberry - that is classic!

Love -

P.S. I (Hershey) was supervising Papa watering the plants in the front yard (the last post) - but your guess of waiting for the mailman was really close!
