In our family, August is blueberry picking time! My husband taught my girls to call them “blue sugar”, and after tasting the blueberries we picked this week, I would have to agree. SO delicious! We love to put them in waffles, pancakes, cobbler, and in a coffee cake topped with the most wonderful struesel, called Blueberry Buckle. But my favorite way to eat them? Straight out of the freezer!

Freezing Hint: If you’ll put your berries in a freezer Ziploc bag, without rinsing them first, you can put them directly into the freezer, and they won’t stick together. You don’t have to lay them out on a cookie sheet in a single layer first, which will save a lot of time.

———–

Blueberry Buckle

2 1/2 c. blueberries
1/4 c. butter. softened
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 C. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. buttermilk

Streusel Topping:

1/4 C. white sugar
1/4 C. brown sugar
1/4 C. flour
1/4 C. butter

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add this to the creamed mixture alternating with milk. Fold in blueberries. (Make sure they are washed, then completely dried. You don’t want any extra moisture in your batter.) Pour into greased 9×9 baking dish. Combine sugars and flour for topping, then cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.

Enjoy!
