Huckleberry Muffins

One day, up high in the mountains of nowhere, we found ourselves a huckleberry patch...they were small...and after about 3 hours of picking we had about 2 cups...just enough for some muffins. Yum...

Huckleberry Muffins


3/4 c butter
1 c white sugar
1 egg
3/4 c milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 c flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c huckleberries


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 15 muffins cups, or line w/ muffins papers. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Mix in the egg, milk and vanilla until well blended. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; stir into batter until just moistened. Fold huckleberries into batter. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling at least 2/3 full. Bake for 15 min. or until tops spring back when lightly pressed.

*If you can't find huckleberries, blueberries work well.
