Blackberry Walnut Buckle

This is a summery cake, and if you make it in a brownie ban you can cut it into bar cookies. And be warned: this is quite addictive stuff. The original recipe called for doing these in ramekins which would be cute. But I like getting to cut a slab off! This would be excellent for a party or potluck, or a brunch or breakfast splay.

Process to a paste in food processor:
1/4 C walnuts
4 TB butter
1/4 C sugar
1/4 tea salt

Now add to food processor and mix until smooth:
1/3 C buttermilk, non dairy milk or cream
2 eggs
1 tea vanilla

Finally add 3/4 C whole wheat flour and 1/2 tea baking powder.

Fold in 3-4 C blackberries.

Pour into baking dish (8x8" or 8x11" would work).  Optional: dust with chunky turbinao sugar.

Bake at 375 for 20-35 minutes or until golden brown and not wobbly.

Best eaten when it cools slightly (too hot and it doesn't taste as sweet). Would also be fabulous with vanilla ice cream on top (ala mode).
