Try something new: Blueberry Buckle.

Happy Father's Day, everyone! I am going to the country for the weekend, as it is my Mom's birthday Monday as well as Father's Day. So, before i run away, i decided to have some lunch with friends and try a new recipe, Blueberry Buckle. An old fashioned dessert that came from a community cook book.

It looks absolutely delicious directly from the oven. The rest of my menu is simple, frozen hamburgers from the store and a pasta salad from a box.

So the recipe is as follows:

1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 + 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 pint blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter

Mix together bottom ingredients, spread into an 8 or 9 inch square pan. Pour blueberries over top. Mix together second amount of sugar and flour, cinnamon, and butter. Pour over top of blueberries. Bake at 350 F for 45 to 60 minutes.

I baked it for 45 minutes, checked it and left it in for another 5. So 50 minutes altogether. I also used margarine for the topping because i usually do not have butter on hand.

It is absolutely amazing, hot or cold. Big thumbs up, this is going to turn into a favorite!
