    A 'buckle' is a moist cake, almost like a cobbler, that is popular in America. This is quite delicious and simple to make, and perfect for when blueberries are in season. The crumble topping makes this moist sponge extra special.

    Reduced sugar by a third and replaced the cinnamon with some espresso powder. Tasted awesome! Great when warmed up and with ice cream. My family finished it within one evening!  -  27 Jan 2017
