Three Berry Buckle Recipe


Early American settlers often improvised with the ingredients that they could find, and in giving the new dishes names, came up with some that were quite unusual. One of these dishes was the “buckle,” which is often served as a brunch dessert or breakfast bread. A buckle is actually a cake, more often less sweet than a traditional dessert cake, with a layer of berries or other fruit baked in. The cake is topped with streusel. As the fruit bakes, it is absorbed into the cake unevenly, and gives the finished cake the appearance of buckling. Hence, the name, buckle.
””
Although the most famous buckle is made with blueberries, other berries may also be used; a mixture of berries such as in the following Three-Berry Buckle, is not only attractive, but also delicious. Since blackberries and raspberries are readily available along with blueberries during the summer, it’s the perfect time to make this delicious cake with them.
