Fruit Buckle

Serves 6-9

1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
I stick butter (1/2 cup), unsalted
1 cup granulated sugar, plus 1 tablespooon
2 large eggs
1 small egg yolk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup desired fruit (sliced peaches, plums, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries etc) ** I used blackberries in this recipe

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 8x8 or 9x9 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt - set aside.  In separate small bowl, combine cinnamon and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar - set aside.

With hand or stand mixer, beat sugar and butter together at medium speed until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs, yolk and vanilla gradually.  Once combined, slowly fold in flour mixture.  NOTE:  Do not over mix batter.

Pour batter into prepared pan and top with fruit.  Gently press fruit into batter.  Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture on top of batter and berries.

Place cake in oven on the middle rack and bake until golden - approximately 35-40 minutes.  A toothpick inserted into center should come out clean.

Cool on wire rack and enjoy!
