Fruit buckles are a quintessential old-fashioned favourite. We’ve produced a more rustic version of the old classic using oats and oat flour but with all the familiar flavours. Cut the buckle into squares and top with a generous scoop of your favourite vanilla ice cream or alternative.
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
In bowl, combine dry topping ingredients. Stir to blend. Using fingers, rub in butter until topping mixture comes together in large clumps. Set aside.
For cake, lightly grease 8 in (20 cm) square or round baking pan and line bottom with parchment paper. Butter parchment. Set aside.
In small bowl, stir oat flour, oats, baking powder, and salt together.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar together until blended. On high speed, beat in eggs, almond extract, and lemon zest until smooth. Reduce speed to low and beat in dry ingredients alternately with milk until all is blended in.
Pour half the batter into prepared baking dish.
Scatter 1 cup (250 mL) raspberries evenly overtop. Spoon with remaining batter and scatter with another 1 cup (250 mL) raspberries. Then add 1/2 the topping, blueberries, and remaining topping.
Bake in centre of preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Lay a sheet of foil loosely overtop if cake is browning before cake is fully baked.
Remove baking dish to rack to cool. Once cool, lift out cake using edges of parchment. Place on rack to completely cool. To remove, run the thin blade of a sharp knife around inside edge to loosen cake from sides. Slide large, thin spatula underneath and transfer to serving plate.
Serve buckle cut into squares or wedges and with a scoop of your favourite vanilla ice cream, if you wish.

This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
