Huckleberry Coffee Cake

Sam came home the other day and surprised me with huckleberries he had found while out in the woods. So of course that led the kids and I to find something yummy to do with them. After looking through many a recipe, we settled on a blueberry coffee cake recipe, which of course we switched up the blueberries for huckleberries.

Blueberry {or huckleberry :)} Coffee Cake
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups blueberries, or huckleberries

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 cinnamon
1/4 soft butter

Preheat oven to 375°. Grease and flour a 9 inch square pan. Mix sugar, shortening, and egg thoroughly. Stir in milk, then stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Fold in the blueberries. Pour into pan. Sprinkle on topping. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes.

This is a delicious recipe I have used many times using blueberries or huckleberries. If you have access to huckleberries, by either picking yourself or picking some up at your local farmer's market, I highly suggest using them. If not blueberries are very yummy in this recipe.
