With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Blueberry Buckle Coffee Cake

Blueberry Buckle Coffee Cake

I picked up an old Betty Crocker cookbook at a garage sale recently and baked up this choice of my husbands. I finished up the blueberries that we picked and froze last year to make way for the new ones that will be ready for picking soon.
He loved it!
Enough to have a second helping!
Enough to ask me to make another one so he could take it to work to place by the coffee.
He likes it even better than my Blueberry Boy Bait.



It was the crumb topping and sweet glaze that impressed him.

What a lovely cake! It looks so scrumptious. I used to find really cool stuff at yard sells. Unfortunately I´ve never seen them in Germany. I´m looking forward to going to some yard sales this summer when I go back home. :)

I love this recipe! I have made this a bunch of times, but I did not have the recipe available right now. Thanks so much for posting it! :)

Pooh said...

Thank you so much for posting this! My mom's all-time favorite cookbook was that old Betty Crocker in the three-ring binder. Even when I was little, it was already well-used! One thing she seemed to make all summer long was this Blueberry Buckle and I have been trying to find the same recipe to make for my own kids. Off to the kitchen now. Can't wait till the timer goes off!!!! :)
