I am on a quest to use up my stash in the crafts arena as well as the pantry.  I had all of the ingredients on hand to make this recipe and here is how I did it:

Blackberry Buckle


  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1/4 c butter flavored shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 2 c flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 2 c frozen or fresh blackberries

Cream sugar and shortening by beating until fluffy, then beat in the egg.  Sift together flour, salt and baking powder and add to shortening mixture alternately with milk.  Blend in the blackberries and pour into a buttered and floured 10″x 6″ or 8″x 8″ baking dish.


  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 c flour
  • 1/4 c butter, softened

Mix sugar, cinnamon, flour and butter together until the mixture looks like peas and sprinkle over the top of the buckle.  Bake at 375 degrees until top is browned, about 45 minutes.

This original recipe calls for blueberries and plain shortening.  I changed it up by using the butter flavored shortening and frozen blackberries that I froze myself.  It was delightful and a nice change for the weekend.  I hope you try it.  Enjoy!

  1. Looks very good! Did you use cassia cinnamon or true Ceylon cinnamon? I’ve written a post about the differences that you might be interested in reading.
