I made that!

Lemon Blueberry Buckle

Posted in All Sugar All The Time by brandi on June 16, 2009

“Rustic Fruit Desserts” just does NOT disappoint! It’s like they put a vacuum into my brain and sucked out all the recipes I ever wanted and made a book out of them. Today I made the Lemon Blueberry Buckle, my favorite buckle recipe so far. But I’m always a sucker for buttermilk. 

First I made a super lemony streusel by basically rubbing all the ingredients together with my fingers. I put it in the freezer to firm up while I made the cake batter.

A pretty standard cake batter, flavored with lemon zest and buttermilk.

I folded in the blueberries and spread it in the cake pan.

Then I cooked down some more blueberries with a little sugar and water and poured those on top.

Then I sprinkled on the streusel from the freezer.

Since that apparently wasn’t enough action, I made a syrup of lemon juice and sugar while the cake was baking.

It came out looking beautiful.

And only got better when I poured that lemon syrup all over it. Made a sticky mess of my countertop, but it was most definitely worth it.
