Blueberry is in the season now. I bought some from the groceries store but it’s still expensive in this time as it costs $2.99 per pound.
Blueberries are powerful inflammation fighters and antioxidants. The antioxidants found in blueberries help to reduce the risk of cancer. Certain compounds found in blueberries (also found in cranberries) are found to have a significant impact in reducing degradation of the brain as in Alzheimer’s disease. Research also showed that blueberries prevent urinary tract infections.
I made this blueberry buckle for my family for all the goodness of blueberries.
The blueberry buckle has a very crunchy topping and the cake is slightly tangy from the blueberries. Arkensen loves it.
