For the love of the Forest and Blueberry Buckle

While walking in the forest the other day, I discovered this grouping of fungi on a tall tree. Long walks in the winter forest are magical, so quiet and so peaceful. On this day, I got a glimpse of Mother Nature. So wonderful!

Speaking of wonderful, how about a plate of Blueberry Buckle. Doesn’t a walk in the woods call for something tasty? I think so.


I found this recipe at Canadian a while back and loved it. Here’s the link.


Blueberry Buckle

1/2 cup granulated sugar      1 cup flour

1/3 cup butter                            1 tsp baking powder

1 egg                                               1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla                            1/3 cup milk

3 cups blueberries


Topping: 1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp butter

Preparation: In bowl, cream together sugar with butter; beat in egg and vanilla. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir half of the flour mix into butter mix; blend in milk and remaining flour mix to make stiff batter.

Spread batter in greased 8-inch (2 L) square cake pan. Cover evenly with blueberries.

Topping: In small bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over blueberries. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until crisp and browned on top and knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.

Sounds like a perfect desert for tonight.

Yummy Blueberry Buckle ready for the eat’n.

My trusty assistant wasn’t interested in photos today 🙂 Here’s a final picture. Have a bite!!!!

Enjoy your day,
