Yankee Blueberry Buckle

Recipe by MarieRynr

This delicious old fashioned dessert will have them scrambling for more. Rich blueberry flavour in a moist batter, topped with a crisp, cinnamon sugar crumbly topping…..served with vanilla ice cream or a pouring of hot custard, you just can’t get any better than this…

This is pure comfort right here! Yep, we all agree it's a winner and one to be enjoyed over and over again. We had with homemade blueberry ice cream and it was a smash hit with us! Thank you Marie.
