Lemon Blueberry Buckle
Lemon Blueberry Buckle

Love the Los Angeles Times Food Section! Always yummy recipes, stories, reviews, spotlights on Southern Cal's farmers market and local produce.

This Lemon blueberry buckle appeared in the Los Angeles Times Food Section in May 2009. It is adapted from "Rustic Fruit Desserts" by Cory Schreiber and Julie Richardson. This is a fruit cake, crumb topping and a lemon glaze on top. Oh yes, crumb topping with lemon glaze. Deliciousness.

The buckle is a simple cake with half the blueberries folded into the batter and the rest sprinkled on top. A crumb mixture tops the batter and then it's baked for 45-50 minutes.

After the cake is removed from the oven, a warm glaze of sugar and lemon juice is poured over the cake. I took the syrup a bit too far and it caramelized a bit so it was a little dark, but it didn't matter.

I brought this into the library and my co-worker did one of those smiling side-to-side sway thank yous. "Oh, it has everything I like. [sway hip to one side] Fruit and that crumbly topping! [sway hip to other side]." I wish I had video. So, make this cake and you'll get people dancing around the office.

yum, I saw this in the LA Times and was tempted to make it. I'll have to try it now. Did you send it in to be featured in the Food Section?

I have also gotten so many good recipes from the Los Angeles Times over the years! The one I make most often is the LA Times Best Ever Mac & Cheese - so good! The combination of blueberries and lemon in this cake sounds heavenly.

The blueberry buckle itself sounds lovely but the addition of the lemon glaze just makes it irresistible! Looks delicious :)

Love the combination of blueberries and lemon... so fresh and summery.
This post just reminded me that I'm long overdue for a batch of buckle. It's been years since I've last made it! It'll have to wait until I can get my hands on some local wild blueberries, though. :)

I adore Lemon and Blueberry together. And in a buckle. Thanks for this one.

I made the strawberry pie/cake today for dessert and it was FABULOUS! It took about 10 minutes less to bake in my oven.
