We have an organic pick-your-own blueberry farm near us and we have picked once and plan to go back soon.

Here is a recipe for Blueberry Buckle.

Blueberry Buckle

½ cup melted butter
¾ cup brown sugar
1 egg
½ cup half and half or milk
2 c. flour (I used ½ cup millet and 1 ½ cup whole wheat)
1 ½ t. cinnamon
2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
2 c. blueberries
2 T. sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and egg.
3. Add half and half, flour, 1 t. cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Fold in 1 cup blueberries.
4. Pour into an 8” square pan (I used a bunt cake pan). Sprinkle 1 cup blueberries, ½ t. cinnamon, and 2 T. sugar over the top.
5. Bake for 50 – 60 minutes. Wonderful served warm.


  1. Sounde wonderful! I'll have to get my hands on some berries and try it! :)

  2. I can see that this inventive blog is going to be bad for my waistline! What a delicious recipe...I might well make it using some of my home grown Rhubarb!

  3. I haven't made blueberry buckle in ages (strange, since it's blueberry season. My kids just seem to eat them all out of the fridge before I have time to bake them into anything!). I would never have thought to use millet flour. We're heading to the Bob's Red Mill store this week, and i'll pick some up. What else do you like to cook with it?

  4. I like using some millet in my baking - cookies and cakes - it adds a nice texture and flavor.
