Approx. 15 servings, depends how big you cut it
This recipe was given to me by my boyfriend's late mother, Marie. I have made minimal changes. She use to make it when my boyfriend would pick wild blueberries, which they call huckleberries, in Punxsutawney, PA when he was a child, then later store bought ones. Although I think there is another berry called Huckleberries. I have tried a couple other Huckle buckle recipes and this one, I like the most. Some recipes call for more berries but it doesn't taste like cake and isn't as yummy, to us anyway. Can eat plain or with ice-cream

How to Make Blueberrry buckle cake-Marie's Huckle Buckle


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees,
  2. Grease and flour an 8 inch sq. pan9 if you double it you can use a 9x13 pan
  3. Mix 1/2 C sugar and 1 egg and Crisco(or butter) together in a med-large bowl. I started using butter because I like it better but I went back to Crisco because the huckle Buckle comes out better, I think. Then mix in 1/2 -1 t vanilla, if using .It wasn't in original recipe but I do it. then add milk. Marie mixed all the ingredients together except Blueberries and that works also.
  4. Then mix in 1 c flour 1/3 t salt(or less, I use usually less then 1/2 of that) and 1 1/2 t baking powder.My BF's (George's) late Mom, Marie, put all these ingredients, in the same bowl at once, except Blueberries in at once.I use to, but do it this way now.
  5. Fold in 1 heaping(big) C blueberries. I put in a little more.
    One recipe I follow says to put 2 t of flour in with blue berries before you add them and shake.I have been doing it that way.If the flour is extra and doesn't stick I usually don't use that.
  6. Put batter in pan,make sure batter is even in the pan
  7. Mix topping, I usually use my hands until it is crumbly and put (sprinkle) it on top Try to get it on the whole cake without having really big pieces of topping, in areas.Marie use to melt the butter,I don't any more,just get it soft.
  8. Bake 375 for 30 min or until it comes out dry when you put a knife, tooth pick in. Lately I felt it was not cooked enough and left it in 45 min/50 min, or so.Look at it and see if bottom is browned and it looks done. For me it was not cooked all the way at 30 min. . Ovens differ.. If the knife/toothpick comes out wet, make sure the wetness is from cake batter not from the blueberries If you Double it you can use a 9x 13 but it needs to cook a bit longer since it’s a thicker cake
  9. Let it cool, I put the pan on a cooling rack, or something like that. You can eat it room temperature or warm Enjoy
