Blueberries + Bourbon + Cake = a sweet summer dessert that can’t be missed before blueberry season ends! Grab a pint and bake up a batch of Blueberry Bourbon Buckle today.
Picture this, you’ve just gotten home from a long day in the sun. Your hands are stand blue from picking all the blueberries and your tummy might ache slightly because you ate about as many as you picked. You look down at the table and reality hits, you got a little overzealous at the farm and there are many pints, scratch that, there’s a bucket of blueberries sitting in front of you.
It’s a great problem to have, it’s peak blueberry season and these sweet orbs were begging to be picked but their lifespan is short.
I’ve been there, you’ve been there. Now we need a solution to this delicious problem.
The obvious answer is to just start eating them straight and I suppose you could freeze them but that’s no fun. Let’s crank up the a/c instead and get baking.
That’s right, I said bake. In the summer, when it’s 90 degrees outside all over the country.
I promise this buckle is totally worth it and plus you’re breaking out the bourbon.
Blueberries and bourbon belong together. Those sweet blueberries are the perfect compliment to the oaky vanilla flavors of the bourbon. These guys get a little bourbon bath before being tossed into a simple cake batter and then topped with a brown sugar cinnamon scented crumb topping.
Enjoy this Blueberry Bourbon Buckle after a night of grilling on the porch or even better, bake it up first thing in the morning for a little breakfast treat! I love sweet treats that can be enjoyed after dinner or first thing in the morning!
