How to Make a Blueberry Buckle Cake

What is a buckle? It is an old fashioned cake with a single layer and a streusel-type topping. This sweet treat makes a perfect surprise for those special occasions.


For the cake:

  • 2 cups and 1-2 Tbsp of sifted, all purpose flour separated
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pint blueberries

For the topping:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup sifted all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch springform pan.
  2. Sift together 2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and ½ teaspoon salt. Set aside.
  3. Fluff up the ¼ cup butter and ¾ cup sugar for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add in the egg. Add the flour mixture in 3 parts, alternating with the ½ cup milk.
  5. Toss the berries in with the remaining flour and fold in.
  6. Pour the batter into the pan. Set aside.
  7. Mix ingredients for the topping using a fork to make a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle over the batter.
  8. Bake for 1 hour. Check if an inserted toothpick comes out clean. If not, allow another 5 to 10 minutes to bake.
  9. When the cake is cool, run a knife around the edges of the pan and life the cake out.
  10. Serve with whipped cream.
