A buckle is a kind of crumb cake, usually topped with fruit and a streusel topping. This version features a rich yellow cake batter with fresh apricots and raspberries, both in the cake and on top. The name most likely refers to the fact that the streusel sinks (or buckles) into the cake at irregular intervals.

I have made this twice, in an oven with recently calibrated temperature. Both times I have found the cake to be dry and lacking in flavor, and both time I only cooked the cake 40 minutes. The overall dish is yummy because of all the fruit juices, but the cake part of the dish is nothing special.
Used blueberries instead, it didn't survive the hour it came out of the oven! It was delicious, have made this a few times now and it always pleases.
