Blackberry Buckle Bread Tutorial

 Another great recipe for those fresh blackberries you'll be picking this summer! You can also substitute the blackberries for blueberries.

Blackberry Buckle Bread

(This recipe makes ONE loaf- I doubled it which is why you see two loaves in the pictures).


1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar, divided
1 egg
2-1/2 cups all purpose flour, divided
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup buttermilk (or regular milk)
2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter

Step 1

In a mixing bowl, cream the shortening and 1/2 cup of sugar. Add egg and mix well.

Step 2

Combine 2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt: add to creamed mixture alternately with  the buttermilk.

Step 3

Spread into a greased loaf pan.

Step 4

Toss blueberries with lemon juice and sprinkle over batter. In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon with remaining 1/2 cup sugar and remaining 1/2 cup flour; cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over berries.

Step 5

Bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes.

I made it today and thought the cake part was dry. Too much baking powder. I wouldn't make it a second time.
