Chef John's Blackberry Buckle

Recipe by  

"This type of rustic dessert is called a buckle because the fruit sinks into the buttery batter as it bakes and 'buckles' the surface with its juicy weight. I was going to tell you to use any berry you want, but I changed my mind. This really needs to be done with blackberries. I added a handful of almond meal, since I had it around, and I think almonds and blackberries have a thing for one another."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir blackberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; let rest, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Whisk flour, 3/4 cup sugar, almond meal, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Stir milk into flour mixture until batter is just combined.
  4. Melt 6 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; pour into the bottom of a 8x12-inch baking dish. Pour batter over melted butter into the baking dish, using a spatula to gently distribute batter without mixing it into the butter, leaving a 1-inch butter border around the sides of the dish.
  5. Scatter blackberries over the batter and spoon any accumulated blackberry juices over the top.
  6. Bake buckle in the preheated oven until crisped and browned around the edges, about 1 hour.
  7. Melt remaining butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir almonds in hot butter until golden brown and toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle toasted almonds over blackberry buckle and cool buckle to room temperature.

This was excellent but I decided to make it even more low carb by substituting 1/2 cup coconut flour for some of the all purpose flour. I had to add just a touch more milk and we love the flavor. I have tried a number of different fruits too and so far the best combo was pitted black cherries, sliced peaches and sliced pears. I mixed the three fruits in a bowl with the juice from the can of the cherries,and omitted the 2 tbs of sugar, my husband liked this the best (no seeds).
