A time-honored recipe, a buckle is a single-layer cake with fruit or berries either sprinkled, or folded into, a thick batter which is sprinkled with crumbs.

Ingredients

all-purpose flour

1 cup(s)

baking powder

1 tsp

ground cardamom

½ tsp

table salt

¼ tsp

low-fat buttermilk

½ cup(s)

sugar

½ cup(s)

egg(s)

1 large

canola oil

2 Tbsp

unsalted butter

2 Tbsp, melted

fresh blueberries

2 cup(s), (about 1 pint)

all-purpose flour

3 Tbsp

sugar

2 Tbsp

canola oil

1 Tbsp

ground cinnamon

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 1 1⁄2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. To make the filling, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cardamom, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the buttermilk, sugar, egg, oil, and butter in a small bowl until blended. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the blueberries. Spoon into the baking dish.
  3. To make the topping, stir together the topping ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over the filling. Bake until browned and bubbly, about 45 minutes. Let cool on a rack about 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Yields 1⁄8 of buckle per serving.

Notes

This recipe is called buckle, because the topping seems to buckle up as it bakes. Blueberries are the most commonly used fruit, but just about any berry or fruit you like will work.
