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.

I made Blueberry Buckle for a family that we invited over for Sunday dinner. The main dish was ok but the Blueberry Buckle more than made up for it. I served it with vanilla ice cream. This is truly a delightful old fashioned recipe. Thanks for sharing this.

As they say "a picture is worth a thousand words". When I saw your photo of this recipe, I knew that I just had to try it. Today we had company for supper and for dessert I served up your Yankee Blueberry Buckle (heated) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Everyone said how much they liked it as they savoured every bite. Thanks MarieAlice for another great recipe.
