Baking:Old-Fashioned Blueberry Buckle with Quinn

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

Quinn was in the baking mood. He helped me make this Blueberry Buckle.

What is a Buckle? A Buckle is an Old-fashioned, single-layer cake with a streusel-type topping. The Batter is quite dense. As the cake bakes; the batter sinks to the bottom of the pan, which makes the streusel buckle on top.

2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
2 cups ( 1 Pint ) Blueberries

Streuesel Topping
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, softened

Whipped cream for serving- optional

Preheat oven 375
Spray a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray

To make the cake, in a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large mixing bowl, cream the shortening and sugar for 3 minutes, or until fluffy. Add the egg and beat. Add the flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the milk. Next, fold the blueberries into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

To make the streusel topping, combine the dry ingredients in small bowl. Add the butter and mix with a fork. The topping will be crumbly. Sprinkle it evenly over the batter.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the Cake cool completely, then transfer from the pan to a serving plate. Slice and serve with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
