Blueberry Buckle

I didn't even know what blueberry "buckle" was until about ten years ago. It's basically a fruit cobbler that "buckles" up while baking. You can eat this for breakfast or after dinner for dessert (or anytime in between)!! This is fantastic warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on it :) It smells absolutely amazing while it's baking in the oven and it will make your whole house smell incredible!! Blueberries FINALLY went on sale at my favorite grocery store this week, so I dug this recipe out of my recipe "archives" and made it today. When I told my hubby and daughter I was making this, they were very happy, it's one of their favorites!

Batter:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
2 cups white flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
6-ounce package blueberries, rinsed

Topping:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup white flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. For batter: in large bowl, cream butter with the sugar; add egg and beat well with large spoon. Add white flour, baking powder, salt and milk until smooth. When well combined, "fold" in blueberries. You have to be kind of gentle adding the blueberries in, they are kind of fragile. Pour mixture into baking pan and spread with knife until bottom of pan is covered evenly. For topping: in separate bowl, blend together topping ingredients with spoon until it looks like loose crumbs. Sprinkle topping mixture on top of batter and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
