Berry Nectarine Buckle Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:20 servings


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 pound medium nectarines, peeled, sliced and patted dry or 1 package (16 ounces) frozen unsweetened sliced peaches, thawed and patted dry
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blackberries


  • 1. For topping, in a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Set aside 3/4 cup batter. Fold blueberries into remaining batter.
  • 3. Spoon into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange nectarines on top; sprinkle with remaining sugar. Drop reserved batter by teaspoonfuls over nectarines. Sprinkle with raspberries, blackberries and reserved topping.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm. Yield: 20 servings.

"I really enjoyed this recipe. My husband on the other hand LOVED this recipe. He said next time I make will make it may have a serving size of 1 instead of 20. We both agreed that it is good for desert as well as breakfast and a tea. I like that it uses fresh or frozen fruit. I had a little problem with the directions the first time but I'll get it right next time. I could go on and on. Just make it."

"I have made this twice, and I love it. I live alone so that amount was way too much for me. I tried freezing it. It freezes absolutely wonderfully. I love, love, love this recipe. I wish blackberries and raspberries didn't have seeds."
