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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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 Read More

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:) Read More

Huckleberries are not blueberries. This recipe came out a bit dry so I think an increase in the huckleberries would do it. A good recipe, it just needs some tweaking. Read More

We loved this cake. I changed a couple of things. I baked it in a bundt pan. I also reduced the brown sugar to a cup. The topping I did was a 1/4 cup brown sugar oatmeal and sliced almonds with the butter and cinnamon. It is light not too sweet so it doesn't take away from the flavor of the huckleberries. Enjoy!!!
