Chef's Notes

This recipe is fantastic with huckleberries, but blueberries would work too.

Reviews

  1. Really delicious way to highlight huckleberries! followed the recipe as written but had to cook for 20 minutes not 15. The batter was pretty thick---couldn't pour it into cups had to spoon it. But they came out moist and fluffy. The crumble topping really makes the muffin!
