Blueberries for Breakfast

I am nabbing a recipe from my mom. It's my last opportunity before I leave town (today!), and I know she won't mind. I don't think you'll mind a bit either because this blueberry breakfast cake is so good.

Technically called a "buckle," the difference between this and coffeecake is the amount of fruit it calls for. It is loaded with more blueberries than batter, which is precisely why my mom and I love it so.She made the buckle on Friday night while a friend and I were walking along the edge of the water at Boulevard, enchanted by the disappearing glow of orange behind silent silhouettes of sailboats, and the next morning we all had it for breakfast before heading to Seattle for the day. See? You don't even have to get up earlier than usual.

As I sit here writing this the change in temperature outside seems to have suddenly seeped inside and concentrated itself on my wet hair and exposed toes. Brrr, a hot cup of tea and slice of blueberriness sounds delicious right now.
