A soft and buttery cake is combined with plenty of fresh, sweet cherries in this cherry almond buckle. This dessert is as easy to make as it is delicious, with a hint of almond and a light brown sugar crumble on top. Isn't it true that summer baking is all about putting in little work for a huge payoff?
Fruit cobblers, crisps, and crumbles all fall under the same dessert umbrella, despite their differences. Slump, pandowdy, boy bait, and other terms are also used. Many of them are fruit-based cobblers that are all delicious in their own way. If you want to learn more, Serious Eats delves deeper into each one.
A buckle cake is a traditional coffee cake or crumb cake studded with a large number of blueberries or other fruits. When you combine the fruit into the batter, it "buckles" or warps around the fruit while the buckle dessert bakes, giving it an indented and textured appearance. Buckles are typically served as dessert, despite the fact that they are topped with crumbs like breakfast crumb cakes.
Flavor: Because there isn't much else in the way, cherries stand out in this dessert. (For the same reason, you'll appreciate cherry crisp.) Of course, there's the obscenely buttery cake with traces of almond flavour and a softly cinnamon-spiced brown sugar covering, but those cherries are the real show-stealer. Literally!
Texture: This dish is based on a popular favourite, so you might know it. Our raspberry almond crumb cake is a popular choice among readers, and for good reason: the cake is extremely buttery and soft, with a layer of luscious raspberries and crunchy crumbs on top. Today's cherry buckle has the same texture as yesterday's, but with more fruit and cherries mixed right into the batter.
Ease: This recipe belongs in our novice category. The batter is produced with butter, sugar, eggs, and flour, which are all common baking components. The crumb topping is optional, but given how simple it is, you might as well toss it on top. Combine flour, brown sugar, and a pinch of cinnamon in a mixing bowl, then stir in melted butter until a crumbly texture is achieved. That is all there is to it.
