Blueberry Lemon Buckle

blueberry lemon buckle

This is a delicious recipe for lemon blueberry buckle. Blueberries are in season and very sweet. They are very nutritious and bursting with antioxidants. It is a perfect recipe for all those sweet in season blueberries. I came up with this recipe after researching several. It turned out really tasty, light and not too sweet. It went great with ice cream for dessert, or with an egg for breakfast. To make sure the blueberries do not sink, you can dust them with about a teaspoon of flour before adding them to the batter.

1/3 cup cake flour

Prepare topping by adding all ingredients to a bowl and mashing with a fork until it is all incorporated and crumbly. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together sugar and butter until light and fluffy by hand or with stand mixer. Add egg and whisk to combine. Add buttermilk and lemon zest. Add flour a little at a time until well combined. Fold in blueberries. To make sure blueberries do not sink, dust with about a teaspoon of flour before adding to batter.
