Paleo Cherry Buckle

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.

  1. WOW! This is such a beautiful dessert! I dearly wish I had a slice waiting for me in the kitchen so I could dive right into a cherry day dream! I will have to make one this weekend with the fresh blackberries I just picked.

    Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

    • Oh wow, blackberries (especially freshly picked ones) sound so amazing for this too! Might have to go find some and make another with those (unfortunately for me it will be from a store!!).
