Classic Blueberry Buckle Recipe

Indulge in the timeless delight of a Classic Blueberry Buckle, bursting with juicy blueberries and topped with a crumbly streusel. This comforting dessert is perfect for any occasion, from casual gatherings to elegant dinners.


  • 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
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9-inch square baking pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined.
  5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
  6. Gently fold in the fresh blueberries until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.
  8. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cold butter pieces, and ground cinnamon for the streusel topping. Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to blend the ingredients until crumbly.
  9. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the batter in the baking pan.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.
  11. Allow the blueberry buckle to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes before serving.
  12. Serve warm or at room temperature, optionally with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
