The quick and simple Recipes from Grandma’s Kitchen are timeless.  Especially the Yummy Buckle Recipes. These are simply fresh fruit on top of the batter that sink in as it bakes in the old Cast Iron Skillet, to give not only a beautiful appearance but a delightful taste that is quick and easy so you can enjoy your dessert after all the work from making your big family supper.  In this recipe Apples and Plums are used. But you can easily change it out for whatever fresh fruit you have on hand. The Plum brings just a bit of tartness to an otherwise very sweet dish. Hope you enjoy! ~ Serena
