On my recipe card it says Barb's 1972. So here you go, a wonderful wild blueberry Buckle from Barb's time in Ontaria, before the move to B.C. and before blackberries became our favourites to explore. We like it because it's so easy to make, and, when blueberries are in season, it is a great one for Sunday Brunch in our house. Thanks Barb!

This was easy to make, and it tasted good. It looked so much like cobbler, though, that I think I expected it to be as sweet as cobbler! LOL It isn't a real sweet dessert. But I enjoyed it, and will make it again. Thanks for sharing, Scandigirl!
