Blueberry Buckle

It's Blueberry time again. Well it has been for a while here in south jersey. We have a blueberry farm around the comer from us. we have yet to go pick our own but we do buy them from the farm market. So I've been making some goodies with them. I made blueberry scones and blueberry pancakes and cookies. Now i am going to make this recipe next.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
2 cups fresh blueberries

1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup softened butter


Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch square baking dish. Whisk 1 cup flour, the baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl.
Beat the shortening and 1/2 cup sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Pour in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing until just incorporated. Pour the batter into prepared pan, then sprinkle evenly with blueberries.

 Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl with a fork until crumbly and evenly mixed. Sprinkle evenly over the blueberries.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the buckle comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Allow to cool before serving warm.
