Pretty nectarine brown butter buckle skillet


Summer is almost over, but nowadays I get a really delicious recipe from my mum. I make this fabulous one pan food a few times and I think it’s time to share with you guys. It is pretty nectarine brown buckle skillet recipe. Now you may be wondering, “What the heck is aBuckle?” Part of the cobbler family, a buckle cake is made by placing sliced fruit or berries on top ofa layer of cake batter. The cake is finished with a streusel topping. As the cake cooks, the batter will rise up around the fruit, giving the top a buckled appearance. I’ll have to say that this is actually the first buckle I’ve ever made, and the result? Totally astonished! This cake is simple to prepare, full of flavor and wonderfully rustic. Here is the recipe for you!

Pretty nectarine brown butter buckle skillet


1 1/2 pounds nectarines (halved, pitted and cut into 1/2-inch thick wedges)

3/4 cup unsalted butter (plus additional for greasing pan)
1 1/2 cupsall- purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup whole milk or buttermilk
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs

1 tablespoon lemon juice

3/4 teaspoon salt

Pinch of allspice

Reserved butter from cake (above)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt


  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.Stir frequently, scraping up any bits from the bottom. Keep your eyes on it, because it burns very quickly after it browns. Set aside and let it cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350. Line the bottom of a 10-inch Cast iron skillet with parchment paper and butter the paper and rest of the pan generously. Set aside.
  3. In medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and allspice until blend. In a large bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup cooled browned butter, sugar and then eggs. Stir in milk or buttermilk. Stir dry ingredients into this wet mixture and then mix until just combined.
  4. Spread batter in the prepared pan. Toss nectarine wedges with lemon juice and arrange them in a single layer on top of the batter.
  5. Stir remaining brown butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt together until the mixture turn into a large crumbs form. Sprinkle the nectarine-topped batter with crumbs. Bake about 40 to 45 minutes or until top is golden brown and tester inserted into center comes out with moist crumbs.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and then let cool for 5 minutes before flipping out onto a cooling rack. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

I appreciate you so much!

Butter I use in this one pan food has been browned. When browning it, you will see a beautiful process. At first the butter will melt, and then foam until it gradually turns clear golden, and finally it starts to turn brown. Once it turns into a brown color, you must remove your skillet from the heat immediately since it is easy to get burn if you heat the browned butter a few more minutes. And the butter shows up in two places, the cake and the streusel. Nestled in this cake are hearty wedges of perfect summer nectarines, a sweet contrast in a sea of rich cake. Cakes like this are called buckles because as the cake bakes, it bucklesaround the fruit. They taste a lot better if you dont badly over bake them, like I did. This cake is really moist and chewy. The brown butter streusel is just the right sweetness and goes really well with baked nectarine. This pretty nectarine brown butter buckle can be a great breakfast when served with a cup of black tea or coffee. You will be energetic through the whole day if you enjoy this one pan food in the morning. This cake works perfectly with ripe, seasonal fruit. If nectarines arent in season, pick a different fruit!If you are making a buckle with summer product, you could try raspberries, blueberries, plums, peaches, or apricots.

Its really hard to resist a beautiful basket of berries when Im doing grocery shopping, the basket of berries spontaneously jump into my cart as I wheel by. Next time I will share with you another tasty Cast iron skillet recipeabout berries. It is Cast Iron Triple Berry Kahlua Crisp Skillet, which contains amount of berries. It is healthy, easy but smellsas if you were in heaven, let alone its taste. Hope you like it!
