Newfoundland Blueberry Buckle

A lightened up tender white cake batter, topped with fresh Wild Newfoundland Blueberries, finished off with a cinnamon sugar crumble. A quick and easy recipe with pops of blueberries in every bite!

It’s that time of year again! Blueberries are ripe and the weather has been amazing so I’ve been out on my favorite blueberry picking grounds, picking as many blueberries as I can.  I’ve been eating them by the handful, in scones, with yogurt, added to salads….

Wild Newfoundland Blueberries topped with Lemon Honey Crema and chopped Roasted Pecans

And last night,  in my Newfoundland Blueberry Buckle. This recipe is very simple and comes together very quickly with items you have in your pantry.  The batter is moist and crumbly, the blueberries so fresh, and the cinnamon sugar topping is the perfect finish for this traditional dessert. 
I lightened up the original recipe with much less sugar.  Other times, when I have made this recipe,  I have also subbed out the butter with coconut oil and the milk with almond milk with delicious results.  I have also added half whole wheat flour and half white flour and that works as well (I am vacationing so had to use the ingredients I had on hand this time around). 


Served warm with ice cream or cold on it’s own, this cake won’t last long!

More blueberries recipes to come so get out there and pick some blueberries! They are so abundant and free!!!
