one of my favorite fruity desserts is a buckle. it is a cross between cobbler and cake. fruit is flavored and sweetened and poured over the cake batter. while it bakes, some fruit sinks and some cake rises giving it a buckled look and the name as well. this one is blueberry and peach with a cornbread cake.
blueberry skillet cobbler portioned out and on display in one of the many little coffee cups and plates in my collection.
and because i am who i am, i made the buckle again today using blackberries. each sunday morning, darry and i go to the ellington ag center to work in the demo garden (we are master gardeners and this is our project). when we arrive, i always have a cake to share with our fellow gardeners.
