Fresh Berry Buckle

What’s a buckle?? First off, know it’s delicious. Then, think of a pie crust filled with fruit cobbler and topped with cake batter. This, is what makes a buckle. Traditionally, blueberries made up the filling of a buckle, but we’re leaving it open to any fresh fruit you may have on hand. The three steps are: make pie crust, fill with fresh fruit compote, then top with cake batter. It’s a snap! Here we have our easy to follow, gluten & dairy free recipe.

Pie Crust smSTEP 1. Prepare your perfect, buttery gluten-free pie crusts. No baking needed! The crust can be raw when filled then baked with filling and topping altogether.

PREHEAT oven to 375°F

STEP 2. Mix the fruit filling, by tossing together in a bowl:

  • 6 cups  berries (any variety)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tblsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Guar Gum

SPOON fruit filling into crusts

STEP 3. Make the cake batter topping. First, CREAM to a fluffy mixture that’s pale in color:

  • 1 ½ Cups Sugar
  • 1 Cup + 2 Tbsp Butter (we use EarthBalance Soy-Free/Dairy-Free)

ADD to this mixture:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Milk (we use coconut milk as dairy-free alternative)
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract

BLEND together in a separate bowl:

ADD this to the wet ingredients and BEAT until smooth. POUR the batter over pie crusts with fruit

STEP 4. BAKE at 375°F for 30-40 min, or until top is golden brown.
