Any Berry Buckle

No recipe image available.A 'buckle' is a single-layer cake with berries (usually blueberries) mixed directly into the batter as opposed to a cobbler or crisp where the fruit is a separate layer. The dessert gets its name from the 'buckled' or 'crumpled' appearance on the top of the cake.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milk
2 cups fresh or frozen berries (blackberry, huckleberry, blueberry, etc.)

Crumb Topping:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Sweetened whipped cream for accompaniment

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease an 8x8x2-inch baking pan; set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Alternately add the flour mixture with the milk into the creamed mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Gently fold in blueberries.
  3. Pour batter in prepared baking pan.
  4. For the topping, combine butter, sugar, cinnamon and flour until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle topping evenly over berries.
  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden.
