Blackberry Buckle Bread Tutorial
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
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
In a mixing bowl, cream the shortening and 1/2 cup of sugar. Add egg and mix well.
Combine 2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt: add to creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk.
Spread into a greased loaf pan.
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.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes.
