Berry season is almost here and I got a jump start with this simple and delicious crumble recipe. I had stocked up when I was at Costco the other week and bought strawberries, blueberries and raspberries – all of my kids favorite fruits. They ate a good amount of them, but I had some that I needed to use up before they went bad. You could easily replace the fresh fruit with frozen if berries are not in season.
The crumble was delicious. The berries cooked down to make a jam like substance and the top was crispy and sweet. It was perfect warmed in the microwave and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. A perfect way to wrap up a barbecue dinner.
2 cups blueberries
2 cups raspberries
2 cups strawberries, diced
1/8 cup sugar, more or less depending on how sweet your berries are
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
zest of half a lime
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 8×8 square pan or round pie pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the berries, sugar, flour, cinnamon, lime zest and lime juice. Carefully stir to mix together the ingredients. Pour in the prepared pan and evenly spread the filling.
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour and brown sugar together with a fork. Pour in the melted butter and mix until a crumble forms. Sprinkle over top of the fruit filling until you have an even layer.
Bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
