Foodie Friday -- Blueberry Buckle

Yes, I'm off a day, so sue me.

Next year, I'll have random Foodie days, instead of just Fridays. Well, that's just one of the concepts that I'm thinking of changing on this blog. Gotta switch it up every now and then, right?

I'll be spending the next few days revamping my blog and updating the links, etc. It won't be too drastic, but I want to be ready to ring in the New Year with a new attitude!
 
Today, I'm posting a recipe for Blueberry Buckle. I had totally forgotten about this recipe until I realized I had a passel of mushy blueberries. They just weren't that tasty, so I needed to do something about it, thus this recipe. Yes, it's my mom's recipe. No, I have no idea where it came from.
 
Blueberry Buckle
 
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup shortening
1 egg
½ cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
2 cups well-drained blueberries

Mix sugar, shortening and egg thoroughly together. Stir in milk. Sift and stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Carefully fold in blueberries. Spread in a greased and floured 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle with topping. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45-50 minutes.

Topping:

½ cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ cup soft butter

Mix together.

Easy to throw together at a moment's notice . . .and the baking time gives you enough time to cook some bacon, make some cheesy eggs, orange juice and whatever else your heart desires.
Enjoy!
