Blueberry buckle

 Make in an 8x8 or 9x9 greased baking pan. Preheat oven to 375.

 Blueberry buckle

3/4 cup white sugar

1/4 cup butter (softened)

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

2 cups all-purpose flour

1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries


1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup oatmeal

1/4 cup melted butter


Cream sugar, butter, and egg.

In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir into sugar mixture, alternating with milk.

This is a sticky dough. You could mix it with the blueberries but I made a base of half the dough, then poured in the blueberries, then put blobs of dough on top. 

Topping: Combine sugar, flour, oatmeal, and butter. Sprinkle over cake batter.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.
