I’ve been so excited to share this recipe. My absolute favorite dessert, like ever, is a crisp/crumble/cobbler; basically any warm, baked fruit dessert with a crunchy, sweet, and oat topping. Seriously, so good!
It’s so basic and easy, but the results are beyond amazing. All you need are some fresh berries; strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries. I chose the strawberry raspberry combo because those are my two favorites. The crumble topping is just basic flour, sugar, butter, oats, and some cinnamon.
As it bakes there will be some ‘fruit juice’ that pools in the bottom of the pan, but that, in my opinion, is the best part (well, besides the crumble). The longer you let it sit and cool, the thicker and ‘less juicy’ it becomes. But, this is also really good warm. My favorite way to eat it is to let it sit and cool for about 30 minutes. It’s still warm and crumbly, and the fruit juice gets a bit thicker. And you definitely need some vanilla bean ice cream to top it with!
Forgive all the pictures. I get so excited about this crumble. The colors. The crumble. The melted ice cream on top.
This crumble could easily be doubled if you’re feeding a crowd, or if you just want extra…. you know, for like breakfast the next day 🙂
