Chef Tips: Professional Advice for making Classic Huckleberry Buckle

Don't Overmix

When adding the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, be sure to add it gradually and mix until just blended. Overmixing can lead to a tough and chewy buckle.

Use Fresh or Frozen Huckleberries

You can use either fresh or frozen huckleberries for this recipe. If using frozen, do not thaw before adding them to the batter, as this will cause them to bleed and discolor the batter.

Don't Skip the Sugar Topping

The sugar topping is what gives this dessert its signature "buckle" appearance, with a slightly crunchy topping. Don't skip this step, even if you prefer a less sweet dessert.

Adjust the Sugar

If you prefer a less sweet dessert, you can reduce the amount of white sugar used in the recipe, especially in the topping. Alternatively, you can also use brown sugar for a deeper flavor.

Experiment with Other Berries

This recipe works well with other types of berries, such as blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries. Consider trying a combination of berries for a unique flavor.

Serve with Whipped Cream or Ice Cream

For a delicious treat, serve the buckle warm with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The creamy texture balances perfectly with the tangy sweetness of the huckleberries.

Store Properly

Leftover buckle can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can reheat it in the oven or microwave before serving.
