3. Stir baking powder into the remaining flour mixture. In a small bowl, whisk milk, egg and vanilla. Stir into the flour mixture until batter forms.

6. Cool slightly on wire rack. Run knife around edge and remove side of pan.

7. Gently heat preserves until just liquid enough to drizzle over buckle. Serve warm or at room temperature.
