Blueberry Buckle

I’m not usually one for blueberry muffins, but I’ve been wanting to try out this Martha Stewart recipe for Blueberry Buckle for awhile.  This cake is the perfect addition to a brunch and since it’s so chock full of blueberries, I think it can actually be considered healthy.  

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 5 cups blueberries
STREUSEL TOPPING
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
