Blueberry Buckle

Blueberry Buckle

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 ounces unsalted butter - at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3 cups fresh whole blueberries

  • For The Topping:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cake flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter - chilled and cubed
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Prepare a 9x9 baking dish by coating generously with cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and ground ginger.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, with the paddle attachment, beat the butter with the sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy - approximately 1 minute. Add the egg and beat until well incorporated - approximately 30 seconds. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture and beat on low speed just until incorporated and then add 1/3 of the milk and beat until incorporated. Repeat, alternating flour and milk until everything has combined. Gently fold in the blueberries and pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

Prepare the topping by combining the sugar, flour and nutmeg in a small bowl. Add the butter and mix with a fork until the mixture has a crumb-like texture. Sprinkle the topping over the batter in the pan.

Bake for 35 minutes or until golden in color. Allow dish to cool at least 10 minutes before serving.
