I distinctly remember a few years ago going to a nearby farm and seeing the trees bulging with cherries. The trees themselves were covered with a huge net to keep the birds from eating the colorful little orbs and you couldn’t walk around the tree without squishing a few under your feet. Ever since then cherries have become synonymous with summer for me and I always look forward to making some sort of dish with them.
This year I decided to try out making a buckle with them. A buckle is pretty much a crumble or coffee cake but I typically consider coffee cake to have the fruit integrated IN the batter whereas a buckle the fruit is a separate layer and there is quite a bit more of it. But really, it’s the same thing. So call this Paleo Cherry Coffee Cake if you’d rather 🙂
This buckle has a layer of cherries, covered with a cake-like layer and then topped with a streusel topping. I use Cassava flour, which is made from the same plant as Tapioca starch but is quite a bit different in consistency. I like the brand Otto’s as it has produced really consistent results in my baking with it. You can get it at their website or on Amazon.
