"Fun In The Kitchen"



Feature Recipe October 2004

Huckleberry Cake
From the recipes of Martha Shetler Leederman


2 ½ cups sugar
½ cup butter
1 cup milk
3 eggs
5 cups flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 quart huckleberries

Bake in a long pan and put berries in last.

(This is where the original recipe ends. After experimentation, I bake in 2 greased and floured 8" by 8" pans at 350 degrees for 45 - 50 minutes or until toothpick tests clean.)

From the recipes of Martha Shetler Leederman, Picture Rock, Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Submitted by Howard and Sharon Leederman 8-8-2004 who brought the cake to the 2004 Pennsylvania Colony of Nebraska annual picnic.
