  1. Delicious! We loved this quick and easy blueberry buckle. I took the recommendation of the previous reviewer and used 3 cups of blueberries instead of 2 cups. It isn't blueberry season, so I had to use frozen blueberries as none of my stores had fresh blueberries in stock. We loved the buttery, cinnamon topping. Next time, I think I will try adding some lemon zest and a little lemon extract to the cake batter. I made this as a breakfast coffee cake and my company loved it. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.<br/>**Made for PAC Fall 2012**
  2. What a perfect recipe to take to the Bible Study. It was my turn to do the refreshments, so I asked the ladies, and this evening, my husband, to rate it. Everyone gave it 5 stars. Comments included: love the butter sugar flavor; good overall; very good; excellent; very good; needs more blueberries; nice and crisp; like the crisp buttery topping; excellent; would like it with ice cream; delicious. Michael and I enjoyed it too, and indeed did have it with ice cream. We both gave it 5 stars. I would use more blueberries next time. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
