  • Blueberries for Sal

    This post is a first in a new series I am creating under the category  “Read and Do,”  in which I will be pairing popular childrens’ book with hands-on projects and activites designed to inspire children’s love for reading.


    Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey, is a charming story about a little girl named Sal who goes blueberry picking with her mother. They plan to make preserves, only Sal eats everything they have picked! When Sal goes off to pick some more, she gets lost. Read it to see if she gets reunited with her mother.


    Bluberry Buckle

    Ingredients for topping:
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 cup butter, softened

    Ingredients for batter:
    1/4 cup butter
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup milk
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp. salt
    2 tsp. baking powder
    2 cups bluberries, washed and stems removed

    To make topping: Stir the dry ingredients together and mix the butter in using a fork and knife until it’s nice and crumbly. Set aside.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9-inch square pan. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs, and stir in the milk and mix until smooth.

    In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder. Gradually stir the dry mixture into the butter mixture. Gently fold in the blueberries and then spread into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the topping over the batter. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
