How To Make huckleberry buckle

  • 1
    If you are working with frozen berries: place in strainer and let them partially thaw. Pour off extra juice.
  • 2
    Mix 1/4 c. soft butter with 1/2 sugar until blended.
  • 3
    In separate bowl combine 1 c. flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • 4
    Add 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.
  • 5
    Butter the bottom of an 8x8 inch pan (for a thinner dessert use a 9x9).
  • 6
    Spread batter in bottom of pan.
  • 7
    Combine boiling water and 3/4 cup sugar. Add berries, stir. Pour over top of batter - DO NOT MIX!
  • 8
    Dot top with 1 tablespoon butter, cut into pieces.
  • 9
    Bake @ 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.
