Blueberry Buckle with Lemon Sauce

“This recipe is a family favourite, served warm as dessert, plain or with a scoop of ice cream. My family also likes it cold as a coffee cake. But the lemon sauce topping makes this traditional dessert a little different, enhancing the flavour of the blueberries.” —Maureen Carr, Carman, Manitoba
