A buckle is so named because the top buckles when it cooks. It is a type of cake with fruit dropped into the batter. In this easy fruit buckle recipe, we feature the summer-sweet taste of fresh raspberries in the cake-like batter and also sprinkle them on top. Conduct your own yummy experiment using different types of berries or stone fruits to find out if raspberries take the cake, so to speak, for your family.
