What is Blueberry Buckle?
How to Make Blueberry Buckle
This is pretty quick and easy homemade blueberry cake recipe. The most time consuming part is to make the streusel topping. I like to cube cold butter as small as possible to speed up the process of cutting it into the sugar, flour and cinnamon.
If you don’t have brown sugar you can just use white sugar, but I love the flavor combination of both in my streusel topping.
This blueberry buckle does have a lot of topping. If you want to cut down on the sugar content, you could reduce the amount of streusel, although I love it made this way!
I lined my baking pan with aluminum foil for easy cutting and then sprayed it with a bit of cooking spray. I love being able to pull out the cake and cut it without the bothersome edges of the pan. However, you could just grease your pan instead.
If you are looking for a way to use up extra fresh blueberries, this blueberry buckle recipe is a great way to do it. While most blueberry buckle recipes are tailored for a 8×8 or 9×9 inch square pan, this one was made to feed a crowd with a 9×13 inch pan.

We enjoyed our first pieces of this blueberry coffee cake in the morning when it was still a bit warm from the oven. It tasted a lot like a fresh blueberry muffin and my kids were in love! Two of them gave it more than 10 out of 10 stars and the other gave it a rating of 9.5. That is definitely a win!
