Blueberry Buckle
« on: August 19, 2013, 11:04:49 am »
What is a buckle? It's a cake with fruit (usually berries, and quite often blueberries) folded into the batter. The cake is covered with a topping similar to that found on a crisp, causing the batter to "buckle" as it bakes.

This blueberry buckle turns out a lot like a huge blueberry muffin. DELICIOUS!

Ingredients

Topping:
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons butter

Batter:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp table salt
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3 cups frozen blueberries (do not thaw)

Preparation
For the topping, mix the sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter until it reaches a crumbly state.

To make the batter, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Add the eggs one at a time until well-blended. Stir in the vanilla.  Alternately add the milk and the flour mixture, ending with the flour. Stir only enough to blend. Fold in the blueberries.

Pour the batter into a lightly-oiled 12-inch dutch oven and spread evenly. Sprinkle the topping over the batter.

Bake with 10-12 briquettes bottom heat and 16-18 briquettes top heat for 30-35 minutes or until a cake tester or knife inserted near the center
comes out clean.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
