buckle [buhk–uhl] noun
A traditional American dessert comprised of yellow cake batter poured into a pan with fruit, sweetened or not, arranged on top or folded into the batter. While baking, the batter rises up between the fruit, creating a snack cake with fruit on top as well as in pockets throughout the cake. Sometimes a topping is added, with a dusting of crunchy sugar, streusel or nuts, but at its heart it is a very simple cake. Try our Nectarine Raspberry Buckle.
