Recipe by Annisette
Haven't tried this yet, but I love blueberry buckles and this vegan version sounds delicious. Recipe suggestion is to serve with soy ice cream, if desired. Cooking time does not include allowing the baked buckle to cool before unmolding and serving, so allow some extra time. From VT July/August 2006

My daughter's bestie is vegan so I'm always looking for something to make for her when she spends the night. We all loved this so much, we ate the whole thing in one morning. I used frozen blueberries we'd picked on Sauvie Island (Portland, Or) this summer. Man, it was like a bite of summer in the dead of winter! Thanks!
