Quick post alert! And sorry for the photo quality. It’s the only way to get a post done around here these days…
I made this Blackberry Crumble at my son’s request a few weeks ago, and it’s been on my mind ever since. It is literally the EASIEST recipe, using ingredients most of us already have on hand. I made it again tonight but halved the recipe, so we’d have just enough for dessert.
I mean, it’s so easy…you could even make a single batch in a mug. Just sayin’. Now I’m wishing I had thought of that earlier. Sigh. There’s always tomorrow.
Anyway, here you go. Enjoy!
BLACKBERRY CRUMBLE: serves 6 (unless you live with me, and then it serves 4)
- 1 quart fresh blackberries
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup butter (and I’m not gonna lie, I add a little extra)
Mix the blackberries with the sugar and set aside for a few minutes. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter until crumbly.
Pour the blackberries in a buttered baking dish (9×9) and top with the crumble mixture. And if you want to make it extra savory, top it off with a little extra butter.
Then bake at 350 ’til brown and bubbly! (Steel Magnolias, anyone?). It’s really about 30 minutes.
Seriously. So good. So goo-ey. So easy. And mmmmm…blackberries.
