First things first! Let me thank you all for the well wishes you sent after my intimate encounter with a pickup truck. On Saturday, immediately after the incident, I felt A-OK. Heck, I even filmed my sauerkraut recipe that afternoon! On Sunday, however, and just as many of you had predicted, I felt like…well, like I’d been hit by a truck. Oh, my aching neck. And upper back. My right wrist and elbow hurt, too. On Monday, my doctor told me such symptoms were common after a car crash. Her prescription? “Baby yourself for a few days.” I did just that on Monday afternoon, by whipping up an easy-peasy Blueberry Peach Buckle.
And what a gorgeous buckle it is! Think of juicy blueberries and sweet dicings of peach, basking contentedly beneath a crisp, buttery lid. In the following video, you will see me eat just one serving of the buckle. I downed two additional servings after the camera was turned off. My only regret? I’d forgotten to take a picture of the dessert until it was half gone. (I used my picture of a similar buckle I’d made in 2016 for the YouTube cover shot.)
Anyway, I hope you’ll “baby yourself” too, by giving this humble dessert a try. The only equipment you’ll need is a bowl, a whisk, and a baking dish.
