Blueberry Buckle

Course Dessert



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger optional
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon optional
  • 4 tbsp softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries washed and patted dry


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp softened butter cut into small pieces


  • Now, let’s get baking! Preheat your oven to 350°F and prepare a 9-inch springform pan (or a 9×9 square pan) by lining or greasing it with parchment paper.
  • For the cake, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, ginger, and cinnamon.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together butter, sugar, and brown sugar for a good 2 minutes. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture, alternating with the 1/2 cup of milk until the batter is smooth. Gently fold in half of the fresh blueberries.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and scatter the remaining blueberries on top.
  • Now, let’s make that irresistible streusel! Whisk together flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Use your hands to cut in the softened butter until it forms a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle this delightful streusel evenly over the cake.
  • Pop it in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing into this delicious blueberry goodness.
  • Go ahead, bookmark this recipe, and treat yourself to a slice of homemade Blueberry Buckle – you deserve it!
