Blackberry Breakfast Buckle

What is a buckle?  It's a cake-like dish using fruit on top, as it bakes, the cake comes up the sides creating a “buckling” in the center. 

This breakfast buckle is a favorite when blackberries are in season.  Serve this for breakfast, brunch, or anytime.

  4. Add milk to use spoon to incorporate.
  5. Fold in half of blackberries and vinegar into the batter.
  6. Pour the batter into the baking pan. Dot the batter with the remaining berries along with drizzling any juices.
