"Straight from the Maine Wild Blueberry Cookbook, this is a great way to use up fresh blueberries. You can also use frozen berries so you can have it all year long. Serve it warm as a coffee cake or as a dessert topped with whipped cream or ice cream. You can rewarm this cake by placing it in a paper bag, and sprinkling bag with water. Place in warm oven until the buckle is completely warmed."

I made this from blueberries we picked, and served it to my neighbor and myself with our morning coffee. So darn good we had a second piece. Another great one to keep on hand!

We never had this before but after making it I will be saving it to be made again and again. We loved it with fresh blueberries and will definitely be made with other fruits this summer as well. We had ours with ice cream. Mmmmmm good!
