"I came across this Huckleberry Cake recipe a few years ago and changed it a little. The cake is wonderful even without the topping! Garnish with sliced almonds and serve with a dollop of whipped cream."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan. Mix together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. Combine the egg, vanilla, 1/2 cup melted butter, buttermilk, and 1 1/2 cups brown sugar in a bowl. Add the flour mixture and stir until combined. Gently fold in the huckleberries. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. To make the topping, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, the white sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Toss with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the cake batter.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Cool completely before serving. Serve garnished with whipped cream and sliced almonds, if desired.

This was a very interesting recipe. I had it without the topping. It creeps up on you and then it explodes into flavor. At first, it tasted like a piece of bread with some huckleberries in it, but as my palette got used to it, I loved it. Will definitely make it again!!

Very tasty ! Thanks for sharing. Just a note to the critic Pam-3BoysMama . Huckleberries are grown mostly in the cool mountains here where I live and in other areas. They are purplely blue and 1/2 the size of a blueberry. If you tasted them side by side , you would taste the difference right away. You have to fight the black bears for them ! VBG I know lol

I tried this recipe and loved it! Everyone that I have made it for has loved it also. We were fortunate enough to have a lot of huckleberries so instead of a 1 & 1/2cups of berries we added 2 heaping cups. Excellent recipe! Will definitely use again!

Very tasty, but after sitting overnight the bottom of this cake became very wet. I used blueberries, which, after a little research I learned are actually huckleberries. Apparently it's a difference in terminology as we only seem to have the blue ones in my area and they are always marketed as blueberries. I loved the topping on this cake - don't skip that! This looks so pretty topped with whipped cream and sliced almonds.

Yum! Now this is what I think of when I dream of coffee cake. Crumbly, crunchy topping. Moist, rich, fruity cake. Makes fighting the bears for the huckleberries so much more worth it :)
