Peach Buckle

20160827_150834Remember those mealy peaches I had stumbled upon a while back? Well I chopped them up and froze them to use for another day. I was craving something fruity and cinnamon-spiced for dessert, so I threw together this beautiful peach buckle. The great thing about this recipe is that it doesn’t have to be peaches. You could use blueberries, plums, or any other berries or stone fruit in this recipe with the same great results.

20160828_082138By the way, you may be asking, “What IS a buckle?” It’s a simple single-layer baked cake with fruit strewn throughout and topped off with a butter-y streusel. The streusel is supposed to give the cake a buckle appearance and can also be called a crumble. It’s a classic American dish that perfectly exemplifies the perfect autumn dessert (or breakfast) dish!
