Mixed Berry Crumble

It’s hard to believe but, after what seemed like a VERY snowy winter and then a single day at 80 degrees, we’ve been fooled – the SNOW is BACK!!  There are two ways to look at it: either this is a cruel trick of nature or the 80’s temp. day was a gift.  I prefer to think of the break in the weather as a gift to remind us Spring weather is coming soon.

In the meantime, how about a nice, comforting warm, mixed berry crumble?  Yea, that’s what I thought…YUM!  This recipe makes at least 4 ramekins but you really could make 5 not as stuffed ramekins. (if you don’t have ramekins, make this recipe in an 8″ X 8″ pan.)

In a bowl mix:
1 pound bag of Mixed Berries, frozen (I cut the strawberries in 1/2)
2 Tabl. Brown Sugar
1 Tabl. Cornstarch
1/2 tsp. Orange Zest
pinch of Salt

Allow the berries to slightly thaw slightly for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.


In a small bowl combine the crumble ingredients:
1/4 cup AP Flour
1/3 cup Oatmeal, Quick (NOT INSTANT)
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

With fork or fingers work to from crumbs:
in 3 Tabl. Butter, soft

Spray 4 ramekins and fill with berry mixture.  Top with crumble.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes or until juices run over. Serve warm.
