Inspired by. . . blue

I haven't posted a recipe in a while.

My sweet mother brought over some blueberry buckle for dessert a couple of days ago.

I thought it would be nice to share some with you.

And, since my mealy sage was showing so brilliantly blue this morning, I thought I would share it with you, too!

  • 3/4 cup white sugar

  • 1/4 cup shortening

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease one 8x8 inch pan.
  2. Cream together 3/4 cup sugar, shortening, and egg.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir into sugar mixture, alternating with milk. Stir in blueberries. Pour into greased 8x8 inch pan.
  4. To make topping: Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, cinnamon, and butter. Sprinkle over cake batter.

This recipe makes a nice dessert, or "coffee cake" breakfast pairing.
