Blackberry Lemon Buckle

Blackberry Lemon Buckle cut into square on a wood serving platter

This Blackberry Lemon Buckle is packed with light fruit flavor and will fill you up for your day. For me anything with lemon is a good pairing but the blackberry is exceptionally good.

You may be thinking, what is a buckle? A buckle is very similar to a coffee cake. The reason for its name is that when you sprinkle on the crumble topping and a small amount of fruit the cake buckles under the weight. Ta da! A buckle!

This Blackberry Lemon Buckle is great fro brunch or meal prep for a morning breakfast. You most definitely can switch out the blackberries for raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries. Any fruit will work and the lemon juice pairs wonderfully with all fruit.

To top of this delicious Buckle bread recipe adda glaze! For this bread I mixed in some Blackberry jam into my standard glaze and it was perfect. Think about adding a glaze to this bread, fin to it will still be divine!
