I have only been home a few days and the weather has been blistering! Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining because at least we have had rain this summer.
Despite the weather I cannot stay away from the oven, and have been baking up a storm ( no pun intended). Some people knit, play computer games, do yoga; I love to bake, it is very therapeutic for me.
I love a good coffee cake( or anything with sugar in it) and came across this recipe on Jules Food Blog for Aunt Erna’s Blueberry Buckle and decided to try it out. I am calling this a coffee cake because I do not think many people are familiar with the term buckle. In any case it is delicious whatever you want to call it.
Blueberry Coffee Cake
adapted from Jules Food Blog
1/4 cup of butter softened
1/2 cup of sugar
11/2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
2 cups blueberries Fresh or frozen (frozen should be thawed and drained)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup of flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1/4 cup of butter
For cake: Heat oven to 375. Prepare an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with spray or grease and flour. Set aside. Cream together the butter and sugar using a hand-held mixer. Add egg and mix well. In separate mixing bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add flour mixture to sugar/egg mixture, alternating with the milk. Gently fold in berries. Sprinkle with crumble topping.
Bake for 40-45 minutes.
This cake is scrumptious! I loved it! It is moist, the berries are soft and a little tart, and the crumb topping is crunchy with a hint of spice. As you can see from my photos the cake is a little sparse on the berries, I only used a cup and a half. I like it that way, but if you are a huge blueberry fan you could add more.
I hope you try this cake and any other recipe I have made. I love when people try things and let me know and if you have a favorite coffee cake recipe leave a comment with a link, we would love to check it out.
Enjoy your day! I hope that you have power, I have heard there are many without on the East Coast from the massive storms that blew threw last night.
