Blueberry Buckle

The moment I saw this over at Lynda's Recipe Box I knew I just had to make this! I wasn't too sure how my husband and kiddos would take to it but let me tell you...They LOVED it! My husband immediately put a huge scoop of ice cream on top while it was still hot and devoured it! I hope there's still some left for breakfast in the morning! Let me know if you try it!

For the cake-
2 cups of cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
4 tablespoons (2 ounces) of unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk- I've used whole and 2%, both with good results
3 cups of fresh blueberries
For the topping-
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup cake flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, chilled- 2 ounces
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x9 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and ground nutmeg. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the softened butter and the sugar together until creamy and fluffy. Add the egg and beat well. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture and 1/3 of the milk, and beat until incorporated. Repeat until the ingredients are combined. Gently stir in the blueberries and pour cake mixture into the prepared pan.
For the topping:
In a small bowl combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Add the cold butter in chunks, and mix with a fork or pastry blender until there is a crumb-like mixture. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the cake. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for about 35 minutes, or until golden. I tested with a tooth pick and my cake took about 45 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

Tara, your photo of this buckle is wonderful! I'm so glad your family enjoyed this as much as mine did. It really has been our favorite treat this summer. In fact, I found blueberries on sale yesterday, so I have to make it again today-my husband can't wait!
Thanks for the link.
