Over the last few weeks I have been seeing a few really nice looking blueberry buckles and I just had to make one while the fresh local blueberries were still in season. I am not really sure why it is called a buckle but what caught my attention was the full two cups of blueberries in it! The next thing that I liked about it was the crumb topping of course. I made a few changes to the recipe including replacing half of the flour with whole wheat flour to make it a bit healthier and replacing some the sugar with maple sugar both in the cake and in the crumbs. Maple and blueberries go so well together that I could not resist working some maple into the recipe. The maple blueberry buckle was as easy to make as mix and bake and it turn out amazingly well. The cake was nice and moist and light and fluffy and just packed with blueberry goodness. I am not really sure if you could fit any more blueberries into this cake but that’s what makes it so good. The maple went really well in the buckle bringing an amazing aroma and flavour that finished it off perfectly. I practically inhaled the first slice but luckily there are a few more slices for breakfasts during the week.
