The buckle is a cake made with fruit and a streusel topping. As the cake is baking, it rises around the fruit often called, it buckles around the fruit. This is where the name came from the “buckle”. The cake is typically an old fashioned cake batter made with butter, eggs, sugar and flour.

The Inspiration For Gluten Free Blueberry Buckle Cake

How did this gluten-free blueberry buckle come about? Well, I was rummaging through my grandma’s recipe box for a blueberry recipe and saw this blueberry buckle recipe. First, I did not know what a buckle cake was, so it intrigued me.

My grandma’s recipes inspire many of my recipes, this blueberry buckle is something I had to make, and it had to be gluten-free. None of my grandma’s recipes are gluten-free, making it always challenging to re-create the same textures and flavours.

However, this gluten-free blueberry buckle version came out outstanding!!!
