Blueberry Cream Cheese Buckle Recipe

When it comes to sweetness, this simple blueberry recipe takes the cake. And while it’s not technically cake, you can literally call it whatever you’d like as long as you make it.

It’s one of those flavors that have the texture of a cake, with the crumble top of a cobbler, and comes together as easy and as simple as a dump cake. It’s literally one of the best tastes and textures, ever!

What is the difference between a buckle and a cobbler?

Many people think that they are similar but there are differences. A cobbler tends to have a crumble topping to it while a buckle is a mixture of fruits, cream cheese sometimes, and cake.

Buckles are made differently so the recipes will vary.

Does blueberry buckle need to be refrigerated?

It does. Once you make the buckle, it does need to be stored in the fridge to keep it fresh. It’s one of those desserts that need to be eaten fairly quickly, so eating it within 2 days is best.

What is the difference between blueberry buckle and blueberry coffee cake?

The difference between a blueberry buckle cake recipe and a coffee cake recipe really comes down to the fact that not all coffee cakes have fruit added to them. Some just add the fruit on top as a topping at the end.

Can you make this buckle recipe with other types of fruit?

You can. You can use any type of fresh fruit that you want. Berries are a great addition so strawberries and raspberries would be great. If you’re a fan of blackberries, that would be great, too.

Can you use frozen fruit to make a buckle dessert?

In my opinion, fresh fruit is the best. Frozen fruit will end up thawing and releasing liquid making your buckle dessert watered down.
