This gluten-free strawberry buckle is easy to whip up and a great way to showcase spring berries for Easter or any occasion. Thanks to Bob’s Red Mill for sponsoring this post!
Crisp, crumble, cobbler, buckle, brown betty, pandowdy, grunt, and slump…it’s easy to get mixed up with all the delicious fruit-based desserts out there! I did a bit of research, and discovered that a buckle is a cake made with berries in which the batter buckles up around the fruit, making the surface bumpy. While sometimes buckles call for the fruit to be mixed into the batter, this one is made with the strawberry slices on top for a more elegant presentation. Leave the slices of each strawberry grouped together when you cut them so you can fan them out on top of the batter.
This buckle is another super easy recipe made with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. (In case you missed it, last month I shared easy gluten-free vanilla cupcakes made with this flour blend that are also perfect for Easter!) This gluten-free flour blend is my go-to for converting recipes that are not gluten free. Every time I’ve tried using this in place of all-purpose flour, it has worked perfectly! The taste and texture are spot on, so no one will miss a thing.
