Blubbery Buckle and a Summer Giveaway

First, a little explanation about the title.
My computer has a feature called "auto-correct"; where, if it thinks I am mis-spelling a word
it will automatically correct it.
So, as I was typing blueberry, I must have hit a wrong key and the computer thought
I was spelling "blubbery"!
So, from now on my Blueberry Buckle will forever be known as 

Blubbery Buckle!

And as promised....another recipe!
And this one is definitely a keeper.



Cake Ingredients:
2 cups flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/4 C. butter (softened)
3/4 C. sugar
1 large egg
1/2 C. milk
1 pint blueberries

Topping Ingredients:
1/4 C. butter
3/4 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. flour
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 C. coursely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar (cake ingredients) until fluffy.   Beat in the egg.
Add dry ingredients alternating with milk. Mix.  Fold in blueberries.
Spread in greased 8 or 10 inch springform pan.
(or can be baked in a 10 inch square pan and served from the pan)

Combine topping ingredients with a fork to make a crumbly mixture.
Sprinkle over cake batter.


Bake for an hour. 
Test for doneness with a toothpick.
 If toothpick inserted does not come out clean, bake for another 5 minutes.


This is a delicious coffee cake type dessert that is a favorite of our family.

And now for the giveaway......

In honor of the July 4th holiday and in hopes of increasing my blog readership....
I am holding a contest.

It will give me a better idea just how many people actually read this blog....

please join us!

The prize is this sunflower apron (made by me)....


A party banner (made by me)....


And a jar of Bee Haven Acres 
Fresh Blueberry-Lime Jam.


All delivered to your door via the US Postal Service!

What do you have to do to win??
You have four ways...

1.  Leave me a comment for one chance to win.
If you leave your comment anonymously, please sign at least your first name and last initial...

I suppose I would be considered a "lurker" because I'm not sure if I've ever commented here, but I sure do love my daily dose of "tails" from your farm! You have been truly blessed! Your aprons are beautiful, and I would love a chance to win a jar of your blueberry-lime jam! BTW, how's Pete?

LOL at "Blubbery" Buckle! I love it! Actually a nice warm chunk of blubbery bubbly blueberry buckle with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream on top would make me all blubberyhappy right now. :)
Thanks for sharing the recipe and for the supercool summer giveaway. Cheers!

A Blessed Life said...

I hope this counts- I have been telling my sister about your blog. When we were visiting on Friday, I told her to get out her laptop so I could show it to her. I showed her your goats and turkeys - we also raise Nigerian Dwarfs and turkeys. We oohed and ahhed over your beautiful garden. Then we skipped on down to a video of Ginger and MaryAnn. I have been wanting Kune Kune pigs for the last year and always enjoy those posts. Anyway, she put you in her favorites. Leanne H.

A Blessed Life said...

Me again! I just liked you on facebook. I would have done that earlier if I had thought about it. Leanne H.

You know you are one of my favorite bloggers. How else would I ever get to visit a farm as cute as yours. I'm lucky to have purchased one of your adorable aprons already but I wouldn't mind winning one too! What a beautiful day today here in PA - no humidity! I'm sitting out on our porch blogging away. Have a wonderful day.

Hi, my dear friend Susan at "From Beyond My Kitchen Window" recommended that I stop by and check out a few things.

Actually Susan is always complementing your blog, so I don't know why I haven't been by sooner!

I'm so making that blueberry coffee cake today! I have all the ingredients on hand, and the family is coming for the 4th of July! I know they'll love it!

I also see that you are having a "give-away" how lucky for me!

I've "Liked" you on FB too

I'm going to put your link to my post that I did today too!

Susan invited me to follow, and I wish I had ages ago!

It looks like you make delicious blueberry jam, I'm going to give your recipe a try. I'd also like to share my "spiced blueberry jam" recipe with you. Here's the link if you'd like to check it out!

I love your posts, I visit every day, but don't usually leave a comment. I guess that makes me a lurker! But I don't blog, and I DON'T FaceBook (gosh but I'mt ired of that), so this will have to be my entry.

Tracy said...

Wow! thank you so much for the opportunity- love your aprons!!

South Valley Girl said...

Hmmm... I thought I'd already put my comment in, but Blogger seems to think otherwise. Okay, I'll say it again: I love your site, I visit every day, but almost never leave a comment, so I guess that makes me a lurker. I don't blog myself and I DON'T do Facebook (my but I'm tired of that whole thing), so this will have to do as my entry.

Leora b. said...

Ok, I admit it. I am a lurker. Maybe it is because I have farm envy? Maybe it is because I don't have my own blog? Who know for sure. But for this conestni am stepping out of the shadows! I see the light!

I do follow you on Facebook andhave commented a few times on how impressed I am with your family's efforts with Pete. He is lucky to have landed at Bee Haven Acres!

Thanks for sharing your farm and all of your 'kids' with us!

Hi Bev, I remember you talking about flowers years ago at my visits with Dr Dave J. You have taken your love for flowers and animals to a all new level.

How you find time to make aprons and jam with all your daily chores is truly impressive. Looking forward to following your farm adventures now that I've found you.

Keeper of the Past said...

What a great give away...that apron would look great in my remodeled kitchen...the jam would taste wonderful on some hot biscuits this winter when the snow is blowing.
I enjoy your farm about as much as my own. More probably cause I am not doing all the work for all your sweet animals that I enjoy so much.

Keeper of the Past said...

I am proud to share your wonderful blog to all my readers on my blog, I mentioned you big time on July 4th...I loved the July 4th parade!

Hi Bev, I love reading your blog on a regular basis but sadly rarely leave a comment so I guess I qualify as a lurker. You have kindly answered my email questions about chicken lice, groiwng sweet potatoes and most recently blueberries and japanese beetles.
Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into your wonderful blog.
One question, do you think you will ever open your blueberry patch to the public for picking?

Hi Cathy...
It is our plan to some day open the big blueberry patch as a "Pick Your Own"....I am thinking that we will do this only on certain days. The plants are still young (5 years old) and need to grow some more before that day. At this point we are eating and freezing and preserving all of the berries ourselves. Someday that task will be daunting!!!
