Oh-So-Maine Blueberry Buckle

Summer in Maine means plump, tart blueberries are everywhere. Here’s a family recipe that is nearly fool-proof….and so delicious! Especially with a scoop or two with vanilla ice cream. 

Ever wonder how it got the name Blueberry Buckle? While the batter rises as it bakes, but the blueberries and crumb topping weigh it down. This causes the surface of the cake to buckle…hence the name.

¾ cup sugar
¼ cup soft butter
1 egg
½ cup milk
2 cups sifted flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups drained blueberries

Crumb Topping:
½ cup sugar
½ cup flour
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup softened butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix sugar and butter with egg. Stir in milk Sift together and stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Carefully blend in blueberries. Put on topping before baking. Pour in a greased and floured 9” square pan.

Bake 45-50 minutes.


This has to be my favorite story from this author. It is easy to fall in love with the Grayson family as the author brings them to life. Each member has a gift that they have not used to their potential. After a tragedy that shakes the family to its core, Paul Grayson announces to his three daughters he has sold the house. While they are trying grasp that , he also tells them he has bought a place  off the coast of Maine. The camp he purchased has sweet memories for him. It is not exactly booming with business and the camp is so rundown that I would be afraid to stay one night there. 

It is no surprise that his daughters' think he is crazy, had a stroke or just getting senile. I was very intrigued by the problem he had with his voice. He seems to have become hoarse overtime and never gained his strong baritone voice back. I am hoping in the next book we find out more about his condition. 

I  won't go into many details, because the story is written so well, you must read it for yourself.  I loved his daughters' and how each one was trying to find their niche in life. One of their problems is not  being honest and open with each other. Place close attention to the name change of the island as you read the story of a family in need of healing.

There are some great local people on the island that was interesting to get to know. I have to say my favorite character is Peg. She has been around the island forever and is the first to welcome the family to the island. Poor Peg can't cook yet she has a diner that barely stays afloat. She has asked God to help revitalize the island and boy does he answer her prayer. Not everyone is happy to see the Graysons' especially the self appointed mayor. He is a very snotty, mean person who struts around the island like he is king. 

The story center around a family that decides to take on a big task to fulfill a dream. I loved how the author writes with deep emotion and shows the struggles each person goes through. There is a faith element in the book that I thought was just the right amount to emphasize how we need to look to Him for guidance and strength.   The three sisters are different but still looking for a bond to form between each other. I can say without a doubt this will be a story that will touch your soul and find you praying for your own family to become stronger in faith and closer to each other.

 There is a special boy in the story that captured my heart. He is a smart boy but desperate for stability. With each page I read , I found myself wanting to live on the island and embrace the  beautiful scenery that makes the island so inviting. There is a mystery brewing about why the lobsters have disappeared from the island that was very intriguing. Don't miss this story about a family that struggles to share their feelings and how an island brought them back together. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
