Blueberry Buckle Recipe

Continuing on the blueberry and whole wheat flour theme- I made this blueberry buckle recipe. Blueberry buckle is a very dense cake. In fact while mixing the batter you will wonder if you added enough liquid- it’s thick.

Blueberry Buckle Recipe

Blueberry Buckle

1/2 Cup Butter, room temperature
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs, beaten
1 Cup Milk
2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
4 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Cups Blueberries


1/2 Cup Butter, cut into pieces
1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
Dash of Nutmeg

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 13×9 baking pan.

In a large bowl mix butter and sugar. Add eggs and milk and beat well.

In a separate bowl mix whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add to sugar mixture and mix until incorporated. Add the blueberries and mix lightly. Pour batter into greased pan.

For the topping, combine butter, flour, sugar, oats and nutmeg. Use a pastry blender to mix until mixture resembles course crumbles. Sprinkle topping over batter. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.


  • I love using oats in struesel and crumble toppings. You can omit if you don’t like them.
  • Add nuts to the topping for extra crunch.
  • You can evenly exchange all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour.

  1. Hi I would love to try this recipe but noticed the instructions don’t really tell how to put the blueberries in. Your picture looks like they are in the pan before the batter but I can’t really tell. Can you tell me how you did it? Thanks so much, I love your site. It has helped me alot.

    • Hi Denise,
      So sorry about that- the most important ingredient! I just updated the post. Add the blueberries after you add the sugar mixture just before you pour in the pan. The blueberries do sink down a bit during cooking.

      Let me know if I missed anything else!
