I looked for this here but I could only find blueberry buckle. This is almost like a coffee cake. I got this out of an old fashioned cookbook from my Great Grandmother, and the description says; "Flummery, Fool, Grunt, Slump, and Buckle were variations of old English puddings made with fruit. They were also common in early America" I will post 3 of the five variations.

What a great buckle Bri. My dh is still eating and enjoying it. He refused to share with anyone, its too good to share, he told me. This cake is so tender, with a lovely crumb on top. The strawberries really bring this buckle to life. They taste like strawberry jam. Great served plain but out of this world when warmed and served with vanilla bean ice cream. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I see in our future, often. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.

This is the only buckle recipe I'll ever use again. So good warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Wonderful! My Hubby loved it more than cake. He said he wants it for his next Birthday cake but that will be a problem in December LOL. I really like the strawberry flavor in every bite.
