Huckleberry Cake

Feature Recipe October 2004

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.
