Raspberry Buckle

I had a serious craving for Blueberry Boy Bait the other day but we didn't have any blueberries. We had Raspberries. So I made this Raspberry Buckle instead.

It was good.

I guess I could have made the Boy Bait with Raspberries. But I liked the idea of trying something new.

The recipe called for 2 containers of raspberries. I only had one. So it was a little light on the fruit. The good news is the cake is moist and delicious so it tasted just fine with one container. Two would be nice. I'll wait for the raspberries to go on sale and I'll make this again.

You could definitely substitute blackberries or blueberries.

And the best part? It's great with a cup of coffee in the morning, as an afternoon snack, or served as dessert. I tried it in all three day parts and give it two thumbs up.

Yes, I did. They were all just little nibbles from the pan. But yeah, probably didn't need to eat it three times in one day.

Did I just admit that out loud to everyone? Yes, I did.
