Raspberry Buckle

One of my favorite summer desserts is this super-easy raspberry buckle, a recipe from 
Everyday Food.

Raspberry Buckle 

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature, plus more for baking dish
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (my addition to the recipe)
3 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 containers (1/2 pint each) fresh raspberries (2-3/4 cups)

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 2-quart oval or square baking dish. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition to combine. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder; with mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture until incorporated. 

2) Spread batter in baking dish. Scatter raspberries over batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean and top is golden brown, 45 to 5o minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 20 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.


  1. That looks like heaven! Once or twice a year I try to make a buckle on the grill after the meal is cooked. Move the coals to the outside edge, put the buckle in the middle and close it up. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Whether half raw or burned on the bottom, it's always delicious. Maybe a raspberry and blueberry one is in order for the 4th!

  2. One word: YUM!

    Ok - a few more: Could you make one special for me and deliver to Niagara Falls? LOL!

    This would be perfect for desert after dinner on Tuesday (having a little gathering) ... wonder if I can do this?

    I took pics of my pergola all dressed up this afternoon (with the 2 hour lull in the rain), and I hope you'll stop by and take a peak! :)
