huckleberries (frozen ok)
1If you are working with frozen berries: place in strainer and let them partially thaw. Pour off extra juice.
2Mix 1/4 c. soft butter with 1/2 sugar until blended.
3In separate bowl combine 1 c. flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt.
4Add 1/2 cup of milk to your butter / sugar mixture and mix just a bit. Add your flour mixture. Don't mix too much, batter will be a little lumpy.
5Butter the bottom of an 8x8 inch pan (for a thinner dessert use a 9x9).
6Spread batter in bottom of pan.
7Combine boiling water and 3/4 cup sugar. Add berries, stir. Pour over top of batter - DO NOT MIX!
8Dot top with 1 tablespoon butter, cut into pieces.
9Bake @ 350 degrees (I use a glass pan and this is perfect). Bake for 45-50 minutes, until center is done. Serve warm with ice cream.
