Mixed Fruit Buckle

Buckle is a baked deep- dish fruit dessert, which combines fresh seasonal fruit and a rich cake batter. Buckle usually has berries in it but I tried this recipe with the fruits I had like nectarines, apricots and mangoes. It was really tasty and we loved it. Please try this and I hope you all enjoy it. You can easily substitute the fruits with blueberries, blackberries or cherries.
