Blueberry buckle is an all time favorite of mine! This is my mom’s recipe that she made frequently growing up for parties and it was always such a hit! This is also one of the easiest recipes ever, which is of course a win win.

It is kind of the combination between a cake and a crumble recipe since it has a crumbly topping. The batter is super thick and when it comes out of the oven you’ll notice how much it rose, giving it great height and texture. Not to mention an incredible tasting inside.

Feel free to try this recipe by mixing up your fruit! In the springtime I love to use fresh peaches from the local farmers market in this batter and it is equally amazing.

Let’s jump right into the recipe. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do and it will be a recipe you’ll make over and over again.

Blueberry Buckle

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups blueberries fresh or frozen


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


Blueberry Buckle

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line pan with parchment paper or grease lightly with butter and set aside. You can use an 8×8 or 9×9 pan for a thicker buckle or a 13×9 for a thinner buckle.

  2. In a stand mixer, cream together the softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

  3. Add in the egg and milk and mix until incorporated. Then add in all the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Don't over mix. The dough will be thick and sticky.

  4. Fold in the blueberries gently and then pour into prepared pan. Using a spoon or spatula, press it evenly into the pan. If doing it in a 13×9 it will take some time so be patient.


  1. In the same mixer add in all of the topping ingredients and mix until crumbles of butter form. Some may be bigger and some may still look sandy, that's okay! Add the topping evenly over the batter and bake. In a 13×9 pan you will need to bake for about 35 minutes. In an 8×8 or 9×9, bake for 45-50 minutes. The top should be golden brown and set. Let cool then slice into bars and enjoy!
