#5 Cranberry Buckle with Vanilla Crumb

I had the pleasure of making this dessert for a couple good friends of ours. We hadn’t seen them in weeks, and George behaved so well while they were here, we were able to enjoy an adult dinner, dessert, and game of Ticket To Ride. I won. This dessert must have made me lucky 😉

What is a “buckle” you ask? Well I would choose to describe it as a blend between coffee cake and berry muffins. The term buckle comes from the action the berries take during baking. They “buckle”, breaking down so that they ooze their yummy juices, which permeates into the cake. It is quite delicious.

  1. I had no idea that’s why it was called a buckle! But now I want one. 🙂 And, go George, being so good for your dinner!
