Huckleberry Buckle II

Sharing is caring!

This is a family recipe from my husband’s mom and grandma. I like it better than the traditional cobbler. This works well with blueberries and blackberries also!


  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 ½ cups huckleberries
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C.) Grease the bottom of a 9 inch square pan.

In a large bowl, cream 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar. In a separate small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into butter mixture. Stir in milk; mixture will be thick and lumpy. Spread batter into the prepared pan.

In a large bowl, combine berries, 3/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup boiling water. Pour over the batter in the pan. Dot the top with remaining 1 tablespoon of butter.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes.
