Blueberry Buckle
This recipe was in a booklet from our favorite U-pick blueberry patch. A buckle is a coffee-cake with streusel topping, so named because the filling "buckles" through the streusel.

Cake Ingredients:

2 cups and 1-2 Tbsp. of all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1 pint blueberries

Streusel Ingredients:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375. Grease an 8 inch square or round cake pan.

Sift together 2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Cream the butter and sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Add flour mixture and milk alternately. Toss the berries with the remaining 1-2 Tblsp. of flour (to separate and scatter the berries evenly throughout the batter) and fold in. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Combine all ingredients for streusel with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.

Bake for one hour, then test for donenees with toothpick. If needed, bake an additional 5-10 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.

When cake is cool, run a knife aroudn the edges and lift out of the pan. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
