Gluten Free Blueberry Buckle

Gluten Free Blueberry Buckle is a delicious old-time blueberry coffee cake.  When we pull it fresh from the oven during blueberry season, this yummy favorite disappears fast!

In my childhood home, it was a once-a-year treat served warm for Sunday morning breakfast, filling our tummies with memorable blueberry lusciousness that sustained us through late morning church service.

Stuffed with scrumptious blueberries, this old fashioned blueberry tea cake, as it was once known, makes a stunning summer dessert your family, friends and guests will enjoy.

Leftovers, if you have any, can be packed up and put into lunch boxes or can be served for an after school snack.

Unlike many gluten-free baked goods that appear different than their wheat-based cousins, have grainy textures, fall apart if you breathe on them and then taste like saw dust . . . 

. . . this rich, gotta-have-more-because-it-tastes-so-good gluten-free coffee cake is a prize winner!

You can’t tell it from the wheat-based original!

In fact, my test panel says it’s so much better!

Quick to put together and easy to make, this no-fail recipe results in a fluffy blueberry coffee cake with a tender crumb. Gluten Free Blueberry Buckle makes a beautiful presentation . . . folks will clamber for more!
