blackberry buckle

It was really a toss up about I was writing today but since I am still craving blackberry buckle, it won hands down.  A buckle is a cakey fruit dessert.  Or is it a fruity cake dessert?  I do not think it matters because it is just yummy.  There is a bottom layer of cake, a middle layer of fruit, and a top layer of crisp.  I simplified mine a bit and made the crisp sugar.  

Blackberry Buckle

1 cup plus two tablespoons butter

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cup flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

3/4 cup heavy whipping cream, milk, or hempmilk

10 ounces frozen blackberries

1/4 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease a 9 in springform pan.


In a bowl, cream the butter and the sugar together.


Mix in the eggs and vanilla.


Mix in 3/4 cups of flour.  Then 6 tablespoons of cream.  Mix in 3/4 cups of flour.  Mix in the rest of the cream.  Mix in the last of the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar.


Pour the batter into the prepared pan.  Sprinkle the blackberries over the top and the sprinkle with sugar.

Bake one and half hours or until a knife interested comes out clean.


If you can possibly wait, this is actually better the next day but it is pretty wonderful straight out of the oven.  It is difficult not to eat it all at one sitting!
