Food Librarian - Peach Buckle with Nectarines

Oh, I'm such a wild girl!

Not.

I've been a pretty boring chica lately. Sometimes, I think my excitement for the day is driving 7 miles over the speed limit (with two hands on the steering wheel...)

Yesterday, I engaged my lead foot and did something crazy in the kitchen.

I switched nectarines for the peach.

I know!! C R A Z Y.

I'm sure this'll be on the next DVD of Fruit Gone Wild.

Food Librarian - Peach Buckle with Nectarines

I replaced the peaches with absolutely delicious mango flavored nectarines from Ken's Top Notch Produce at the farmer's market. This is breeding done right.

Peaches or Nectarines are folded into the batter. The topping is sugar, cinnamon and sliced almonds. I've also made a Peach and Blueberry Buckle - that's yum too.

And why did I pick the Peach Buckle?

I don't want to go all TMI on you, but my gums are pathetic. For some reason, one speck of plaque on my teeth cause much, much misery. I need to get my teeth cleaned four times a year. I see my hygienist more than my relatives. I'm supposed to floss twice a day, Sonicare after every meal, use a prescription toothpaste ($17 a tube!), Waterpik, Sulcabrush and not snack too much (that one I can't handle). I'm probably the only one in the library with an electric toothbrush on my desk (behind my monitor - not next to the reference books, thank you very much). But last month I had more dental issues and mega sensitivity on one of my molars. My dentist said they need to cover the exposed nerves with a "buckle."

And what did I think when I hear "buckle"? Novocaine? No...Fruit Buckle!!

However, I later learned that my dentist was probably talking about the buccal surface of the tooth...oh well, I'm calling this My Buckle for My Buccal!

Got peaches? Got nectarines? Got blueberries?

Mango flavoured nectarines?! That sounds so yummy!! I've always preferred nectarines over peaches just because I'm not fond of the fuzz factor. I've only ever made blueberry buckle and it seems like I'll need to branch out! :D

I've seen so many recipes for "buckles" (mostly blueberry ones) and I've never quite known what they are. Now I do...and I want to make this one. Probably with peaches, though. I don't want to get too far out there! :)

i've never heard of mango flavored nectarines. i wonder if mango + peaches would work too. that's a beautiful buckle!

You crazy crazy girl - nectarines for peaches? I can barely handle the excitement! Have to admit though, I'm pretty much the same way. A wild day for me involves making the entire recipe for something instead of scaling it down. Sad, huh?

Just beautiful...never heard of mango flavoured nectarine, but this is awesome! I'm sorry about your dental agony.Hope you feel better very soon...

I love the little chunks of fruit - so pretty!

That dough looks so dense and moist. I actually don't love peaches. Nectarines are a much better choice :)

I've been looking for a recipe using nectarines and this is perfect! Not sure if I'll ever be able to find mango-flavored ones but I'll settle for the regular nectarine-flavored ones too!

This looks really tasty. And it sounds like it would go perfect with a cup of tea (iced or hot). Yum. When are you coming back again? ;) love you, Rach

I have nectarines in the fridge, and a husband who's a dentist, so I think this buckle is calling my name!

How two people born on the same day, can be sooooo different, I dunno. LOL LOL

I switch everything, all the time! Ask for black, and I'll give you white... I cannot resist unconformity.

Ain't crazy fun??? LOL

Well done, I hope you "risk it" more often! lol

I heard the editor of Playfruit was going to contact your buckle about being a centerfold...

eatme_delicious said... [Reply to comment]

Mango flavoured nectarines? Intriguing. Though I wasn't a big fan of the grapple! Regardless, this buckle looks delicious. Perfect summer treat!

Wow, that looks great! I love the chunks of nectarine almost 'suspended' in the batter. Sorry about your teeth!

Juliana said... [Reply to comment]

The nectarines look nectarine and not mango...where did the mango flavor come from? Anyway, the cake looks delicious...moist...yummie!

Debbie said... [Reply to comment]

This buckle looks really good. Different from others I've seen. I can't stand going to the dentist. A very big fear here!
