About the Recipe

Several years ago I shared individual crumbles that are similar but a little lighter on the topping. They’re great, but I wanted to scale it up and make things a little easier by baking a big crumble in a baking dish. I also amped up the buttery, sugary topping. Because… butter and sugar, obvi.

It starts with a combination of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries tossed together with some sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch.

Top the fruit with butter, oats, and brown sugar crumble topping and into the oven it goes.

When it comes out the topping will be golden and the fruit will have broken down and released their juices creating a thick, sweet, and tart sauce.

This Berry Crumble is Perfect with Ice Cream

Can I tell you how satisfying it is to break through that crunchy golden topping to scoop up that beautiful fruit filling? This is the kind of dessert you carry proudly to the table so you can lord over your guests just begging for a taste. Not that I would ever lord over anyone, but you might just be the most powerful person in the room when you make this berry crumble.

Allowing it to stand for a few minutes at room temperature lets the juices to thicken and simmer down a bit before you scoop generous servings into bowls. Serve it warm with vanilla ice cream for the best experience.
