Cherokee Huckleberry Bread

Cherokee Huckleberry Bread

*Oklahoma Huckleberry/Blueberry Season*

2 1/4 Cups all-purpose Gluten Free Flour (Reserve 1/4 Cup for coating berries)

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1 Cup White Granulated Sugar

1 Stick Melted Butter ( 1/2 Cup)

1 Cup Milk

3 Eggs Beaten

2 Cups Huckleberries washed and stemmed ( or Blueberries )

Preheat oven to 350*

In large mixing bowl, whisk together 2 Cups of the flour, baking powder, and sugar. Then add melted butter, milk and beaten eggs. Mix ( by hand or with mixer) until batter is smooth and all dry ingredients are gone. In a small bowl sprinkle fresh berries with the ¼ cup of flour, turning them over by hand so you don’t mash them, completely coating berries with flour. Lift berries out of the excess flour and place them into the batter. Gently fold berries into batter. Then pour batter into a buttered 10 inch cast iron skillet. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes or until bread is set in the center and brown. If you want additional browning on top place under broiler for about 1 minute. Remove from oven, let cool and serve. We like to dust each slice with a little powdered sugar, or eat it with ice cream.
