Strawberry Buckle

About a month ago I came across one of my favorite foodies talking about The Secret Recipe Club and immediately thought it sounded like fun. A great way to meet other foodies and make recipes that I may not have tried before, I’m in. Unfortunately there was a waiting list so I was not able to join right away, but soon I was contacted and in and today I am sharing with you my very first recipe from my new club.

I was sent a link to the blog Choose with Noodles which meant I could choose any recipe from the blog that I would like. As soon as I came across blueberry buckle I knew I wanted to make it. The thing is though that blueberries are hard to come by here in Saudi and when you do find them they are pretty expensive therefore I substituted strawberries which I always have on hand. I knew right away this recipe was going to be perfect. The batter was just the perfect color and consistency.

It was a pretty simple little cake to make and the perfect size. I made some mint tea to have with mine and they paired well together.

1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped strawberries

Topping:
2/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup cold butter, cut into half inch cubes

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a 8×8 baking pan and sit aside. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together butter, sugar and egg. Pour in milk and add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until everything is combined, then gently fold in the strawberries.

2. Spread the batter into the prepared dish.

3. To make the topping, stir together the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in the cold butter and dry ingredients together until you have pea sized pieces of topping. Sprinkle over the batter and bake about 40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Yields: 8 servings

    Noor, it’s my first month participating as well! I’m so glad the Strawberry Buckle turned out well for you. Strawberries sound like a fantastic substitution for the blueberries! For some reason I’ve never baked with strawberries (I love them raw so much that they never make it into any recipe I have planned), but I will have to try your version :)

      I think our group may be all the newbies. Oh I love any type of berry and they all bake really well. And I hear you we also eat them raw and hardly have them to do anything else with. As soon as I saw your site I ran and took some before they were all ate.

    I would like to live in a place where I could always have strawberries on hand :) I’ll have to wait for June when the snow is gone. Thanks for sharing!

      Oh trust me they do not compare to the ones that I can get back home. My small town in Tennessee is know for our Strawberries and we even have a strawberry festival yearly.

    Welcome to SRC! It’s a lot of fun.

    We just bought some strawberries yesterday, and I was looking for a recipe to use them in. This may just be the one!
