Blueberry Crumb Buckle

Recipe by Vseward Chef-V

This is my version of a bakery style blueberry buckle. I especially like this recipe because it has walnuts in the crumb topping on a moist cake which is perfect for breakfast or brunch.

I made this recipe on 7/8/2011 for the Fruit Event in the Photo Forum.Except for leaving out the walnuts, the recipe was made exactly as it was written.Just like Bev, I too had to bake for an extra 20 minutes to get the middle done.The cake itself was very moist and had a very good flavor, and I thought the topping was just a bit " too sweet " for my tastes.If I do make this again, I'll cut the amounts of both sugars in half. Thanks so much for posting the recipe and, "Keep Smiling :) "
