September Craft:Along: Strawberry Rhubarb Buckle

One of the optional challenges for Finny and Kelli's September Craft:Along is making Strawberry Rhubarb Buckle. Last night I gave it a try.

The recipe was created by Katie Goodman of goodLife {eats} blog and featured on Craft:.

Please note there’s a small error in the recipe. Batter ingredients call for 1 teaspoon baking soda; however, it should read 1 teaspoon baking powder—at least I hope so. The directions use the word powder and that seemed reasonable to me, so that’s what I used.

The buckle is baked in individual ramekins, mine are heart-shaped. I’m not convinced I did the topping correctly—it looks like chunks of ground beef. Ah well, the taste is divine and that’s good enough for me.

Although not part of the Craft:Along challenge, I tried Williams-Sonoma’s Croque Madame recipe last week. My husband liked the bit about a fried egg on top of the sandwich, but I left it off my portion as I think it’s yucky.

Haha June -- you wouldn't like it at our house -- we have a few recipes that we love to put fried eggs on. The white is cooked, the the warm yolk makes a pseudo gravy. ;-)

Yumm, I can not speak for Katie but it probably was baking soda because of the acid in the buttermilk. But I am glad it was good xoxo Clarice

My husband LOVES a fried egg on his hamburger. Eww.

Both of those look FANTASTIC. I actually sort of like the idea of an egg on top of my sandwich. LOL Sounds messy though! :D

But seriously...YUM.

Can I come to your house for dinner one night? ;)

Oh, sweet rhubarb. I haven't had rhubarb in years. I used to love it... I bet I still do judging by the way I drooled as I read about your newest dessert adventure.

Hi June

I'm an egg lover so I would have had the fried egg on top of my Croque Madame.

The buckle looks yummy! I can't wait to get baking again now that it is cooler.

Your buckle looks good! And you even had the fancy ramekins - so nice.

The egg is yucky, I agree. What is the deal with people who like eggs on and in everything? EW.

love your little heart shaped ramekin!
And ooh my that Croque Madame looks absolutely scrumptious. I'm going to try that!
