What's a buckle, you ask? It's a Northeastern US, streusel-topped coffee cake loaded with fruit. This one's full of blueberries and some spicy zippiness from ginger and black pepper. The buckle has a dense texture and a crunchy, crackled (buckled) top. It's perfect for brunch, breakfast of with tea or coffee.
We went with the full amount of ginger from the original recipe. If you don't like ginger or have a sensitive palate, cut it in half or omit altogether. We added less than half the pepper when we made ours.
We saved a few of our blueberries to stud the top of our cake at the end. Simply press into the streusel topping.
Our recipe is loosely based on one in the book Bake From Scratch, Volume 2. We made alterations in the ingredients and technique, so we're calling it our own.
Cake keeps for one day on your counter or five days in your refrigerator in a sealed container. We don't recommend freezing.
