Blueberry Buckle

Andrea Frobel


I think Mom got this from Betty Crocker. When we were kids, my mom only made this once in a while. There was never enough! I double the recipe for potlucks and I always get tons of compliments. It's one of my favorite recipes EVER! It's good warm, but it's best the next day (if you can make it last).
