I know this is The Armenian Kitchen website, however the following recipe, Blueberry Buckle, is not Armenian. It was, however, made by an Armenian (me) in my kitchen therefore I declare that it qualifies!
What’s a ‘buckle’, you ask? In the culinary world, ‘buckle’ is an old American term for a simple, single-layer cake made with blueberries or other berries.
Despite my ingredient substitutions, the buckle was a big hit! Doug particularly enjoyed the sweet-tart taste and moist texture.
I ended up wrapping some pieces and putting them in the freezer because we want to make this dessert last.
You never know what will be in our next grocery delivery.
Ingredients for the cake:
Nonstick cooking spray
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature
¾ cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup whole milk (I used fat-free)
Ingredients for the topping:
1/4 cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar (Note: if you don’t have brown sugar, just use a total of ½ cup granulated sugar.)
1/3 cup flour, approximately
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 35 minutes or until golden in color. Cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
