Blueberry Buckle Recipe

Every time I saw mention of a blueberry buckle recipe, I was always a bit fascinated by this unusual name. Until a friend gave me this recipe, I always imagined that it was a regional specialty from deep somewhere in blueberry country. I still have no idea where it comes from, but it sure tastes good!
