A buckle is a kind of coffeecake made with fruit - usually blueberries - and a sugar/spice topping.
Tradition has it which the name comes from the way the cake "buckles" as it bakes, rising around its fruit topping (that is also sinking), so which the cake finishes with a very uneven top surface.
We present here a traditional blueberry buckle.
A very moist cake, it's best served warm out of the oven (with whipped cream/ice cream if you like), or possibly hot.
If allowed to sit longer than 12 hrs or possibly so, the buckle tends to become mushy.
Although blueberry is the usual fruit found in a buckle, try it with other berries or possibly with summer fruits, that have been diced and well-liquid removed.
