Blueberry Buckle Ingredients Cake ingredients: 2 cups and 1-2 Tbsp of sifted, all purpose flour separated 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened 3/4 cup sugar 1 large egg 1/2 cup milk 1 pint blueberries Topping ingredients: 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened 1/2 cup sugar 1/3 cup sifted all purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon Method 1 Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease an 8-inch spring form pan. Set aside. 2 Sift together the 2 cups of flour, the baking powder and the salt. Set aside. Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg. Add the flour mixture in 3 parts, alternating with the milk. Toss the berries with the remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour (to separate and scatter evenly throughout the batter) and fold in. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Set aside. 3 Combine ingredients for topping with a fork to make crumbly mixture. Sprinkle this over the batter. 4 Bake for 45 - 50 min., then test for doneness by gently inserting a fork. If it does not come out clean, give the cake another 5 to 10 minutes to bake. 5 When the cake has cooled, run a knife around the edges and lift the cake out o the pan. Serve with whipped cream.

Huckleberries are hard to pick because they are small and not all that close together. It takes a lot of picking to get a few berries. But it's worth it. Now I realize why there are people parked in town selling them for $35 - 40 per gallon.
We came home with enough berries to make a delicious pie and even a few more to freeze. Paige kept her own stash in the fridge just for snacking on. Who knows, maybe next year we will get enough to make Jam!
p.s. Thanks Cassi for some of the photos. Our camera showed up for picking day with a low battery!
Like Mother, like Daughter?? Paige is pretty cute, but she doesn't have the groovy outfit, hairdo and glasses that I did at this age.

We spent plenty of time playing with Grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles.
TEMPLES - check
Molly and Mike were the only ones that actually got a family photo at the Logan temple. It was closed for cleaning and landscaping by the time we made it there. The girls loved driving by it each time we drove through Logan. During our stay we saw the Logan, Salt Lake, Bountiful, Oquirrh Mountain, Draper, Rexburg & Idaho Falls temples.
We rode quads and motorcycles at the St. Anthony Sand Dunes with Keith & Jenny, Grandma & Grandpa Davidson, Dave & Heather Paxman. Luckily, there was still water in Egin lake so we could cool off while waiting for rides during the hot weather.
AGGIE ICE CREAM- double check
Our favorites... Aggie Blue Mint, Bubble Gum, Lemon Custard, Chocolate Almond
LOGAN TABERNACLE - check
The highlight for Hannah and Paige was attending 4 days of horse camp at the Platt farm. See my other post for more fun details.
SWIMMING - Check
We swam in Grandma's hot tub, at the Logan Aquatic center, at the seasonal lake on the Sand Dunes and at Saratoga Hot Springs during the Byington Family Reunion. Hannah started diving and ventured out into the deep end. She is getting to be a great swimmer. PETTING ZOO - Check
My parent's long-term neighbor, Sherry Schiess, loves little animals. Whenever we visit she always has some new animal or baby goats for us to pet and feed. This time it was baby ducks. They were so cute following around behind their mother.
