Berry Nectarine Buckle

 Berry Nectarine Buckle
I found this recipe in a magazine a long time ago, but modified it over the years. We enjoy its combination of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and nectarines, particularly when the cake is served warm with low-fat frozen yogurt. —Lisa Darling, Rochester, New York
