For the Blueberry Batter:

  • - 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • - 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • - 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • - 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • - 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • - 2 large eggs
  • - 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • - 1/2 cup milk
  • - 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

For the Brown Sugar Topping:

  • - 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • - 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • - 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • - 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Preheat the Oven:

   - Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

2. Prepare the Blueberry Batter:

   - In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

   - In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

   - Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Stir in the vanilla extract.

   - Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, and mix until just combined.

   - Gently fold in the blueberries until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

3. Make the Brown Sugar Topping:

   - In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, softened butter, and ground cinnamon. Use a fork or your fingers to mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

4. Assemble the Buckle:

   - Spread the blueberry batter evenly into the prepared baking pan.

   - Sprinkle the brown sugar topping over the top of the batter, covering it evenly.

5. Bake the Buckle:

   - Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

6. Serve Warm:

   - Allow the blueberry buckle to cool slightly before serving.

   - Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
