Have you ever had blueberry buckle? Think blueberry muffin meets coffee cake and you’ll be somewhere in the vicinity of a blueberry buckle. It’s a blueberry cake with a dense batter and a streusel topping that “buckles” as the cake cooks.
My father, the baker in this family, first introduced me to blueberry buckles years ago, from an old newspaper recipe clipping. According to the clipping the recipe is originally from the now out-of-print, but highly regarded Lee Bailey’s Country Desserts. The recipe has long become on of our family favorites. I mean, who wouldn’t like a giant blueberry muffin coffee cake?
