This triple berry buckle recipe is easy to make and serves a group of people for a nice breakfast or treat any time of day.
Taking advantage of summertime produce is something I always like to do.
Today I’m sharing a triple berry buckle that is somewhat like a coffee cake, except that the ratio of berries to the batter is higher.
I used blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries for this recipe. I wanted to use black raspberries from the yard, but this year I am not seeing many. They were so tasty in my wild black raspberry ice cream pie recipe. I hoped I would be able to cook with them again this season.
Traditional blackberries worked just as well.
What’s a Buckle
As you can see the berries, (4 cups) are mixed right into the batter. I believe this is why it is considered a buckle as opposed to a cobbler.
The batter is spread on to the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan so there is plenty to share. Also, I was looking for more of a bar-sized serving and less of a cake serving. You can make this in a smaller pan, such as an 8 x 8-inch pan, and the servings will be taller.
However, the other reason I wanted to spread out the batter had to do with this yummy crumb topping.
A larger pan meant more crumb topping, and that’s one of the things that makes the dessert. If you decide to bake this in a smaller pan you may want cut back on the crumb topping.
I served a few fresh berries on the side but I do think vanilla ice cream or a little whipped cream would be fantastic.
This recipe makes 24 delicious servings. Perfect for feeding a crowd.
