Blueberry Buckle – Video Recipe

I‘ve written about buckles a couple of times in this space: the original raspberry-blueberry buckle that got me started making them, and a peach and sour cream variation that I made on vacation in hot, hot eastern Washington last summer when I was apparently feeling poetic.

The beauty of buckles and all of the other rustic American fruit desserts is that they are wildly flexible. They will accept whatever kind of fruit you have, you can change out the dairy, make them part whole wheat… it doesn’t matter. As long as the fruit is good, the buckle is going to be tasty. If you are using a harder fruit, like apples, you’ll just want to saute them first so you aren’t relying on the baking time to cook them through.

The full recipe is in in my cookbook.

    I can’t believe no one commented yet. You make this dessert and video blogging look so effortless. I always feel like a complete tool when I talk into the camera. I make my husband leave the kitchen. Looking forward to your foodtv show. :)

    Rustic is da bomb, Michael. I love pies as well, even though you have to do a time consuming homemade crust, but really, I am just as happy with a baked fruit something and a crunchy topping. I have the cookbook on pre-order, so I’m sure this will be one of the first recipes I try- summer is not far away!
