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!

This is an excellent recipe. I went a step further and put a "crisp" topping on it, i.e., equal parts of oatmeal, flour and brown sugar with a dash each of baking powder and baking soda and melted butter. I added a little cinnamon to the berries and decreased the sugar a little. What a dynamic duo! Read More

Delicious recipe! Careful when pouring huckleberry mixture into pastry mixture on bottom...pour slow and evenly over the pastry otherwise the middle is very runny and messy. Read More

This is my favorite way to bake with huckleberries! The first time I used this recipe I was short on berries. I chopped up some Fuji apples to make up for the missing huckleberries and it was delicious! I have found that I need to cook the cobbler 5 - 10 minutes longer than the suggested bake time in order to fully cook the center so it's not doughy. Read More

I had been given a recipe very similar to this one by my husband's aunt when I got married 30 years ago. It was a staple in our house and I made it with all sorts of berries peaches even apples. I lost the recipe a few years ago and have been searching for it and here it is! I knew as soon as I saw boiling water on the ingredient list that this was it! One thing I do to make it a bit easier is to just layer the fruit on top of the batter followed by the sugar and pour the water over top. Like another reviewer suggested keep a cookie sheet under the pan it usually bubbles over. This is one oof my favorite recipes ever! Read More

This is a super yummy way to use up all those blackberries growing in my yard. One word of advise- the berry mixture has a tendency to bubble up out of the pan so it helps to put a baking sheet underneath to make cleanup a little easier Read More

This was an awesome recipe! I took the advice of another reviewer and strained the berries before putting them on the batter. SO GOOD! The batter ended up being a cake-like consistency which I didn't expect but it was perfect. My boyfriend and I ate almost the whole pan right out of the oven. Make two they'll go fast. Read More

This was really easy and good! I didn't put quite all the juice on when I was scooping the huckleberry water sugar mixture on top of the crust. I just drained the berries out at the end w/ a slotted spoon after I figured there was enough juice on the crust. We served vanilla ice-cream on top of warmed huckleberry buckle and was really good!!! Read More

I've been on a "cobbler kick" for a few months now and have tried about 10 recipes from this site. This is my favorite one so far. I don't use huckleberries though. I've been using a frozen fruit salad mix (peaches pineapple honeydew melon strawberries) which I toss with just a little sugar and 1 tbsp of cornstarch (no boiling water or butter). Increase baking time to 60-65 minutes. Come summer I'll try this recipe using a variety of fresh fruits. Read More
