Blackberry Crumble

Blackberry Crumble

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)

You need:

  • 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.

Happy February!
