Mulberry Buckle - a super easy dessert recipe

I have discovered this delicious and super easy dessert using mulberries called a buckle. I can almost hear you asking "What is a buckle?" Here is the definition straight from Huffington Post. "A buckle layers a more traditional, cakey batter underneath the fruit. As the dessert cooks, the cake rises around the fruit, which tries its best to sink to the bottom, making the whole thing buckle inwards."

I adapted it from this recipe Lazy Day Cobbler and thought to try it out with my mulberries.

WOW! It is fantastic. It is really easy to make. I was worried as I was making it that it would be too sweet but it wasn’t. It great for an easy to make dessert. I had boobed and what I thought was cream in my pantry was actually full cream milk, so we had to eat it ‘naked’ and it still got the thumbs up. I am sure it would be fabulous accompanied with cream or ice cream. It is enough for 6 people. I am going to try to halve it as our youngest is leaving the nest in just 3 weeks (to live in Japan!)
