Mixed berry crumble is a medley of your favorite berries topped with a sweet, buttery oatmeal crumble and baked until bubbly. It’s the perfect way to welcome spring!  

Mixed Berrry Crumble

What do you do when faced with an abundance of fresh berries? Say…strawberries, blueberries and blackberries or raspberries? Why you make a mixed berry crumble, of course!

Blueberries, Strawberries and Blackberries

I always have a lot of fruit around. Vegetables don’t always go over with fireworks around here. But, fresh fruit is always a hit. And, when that fruit becomes dessert, life is good. 😉

I’m going to walk you through the easy preparation…and then share an exciting announcement about a baking contest that readers and bloggers alike can enter.

Mixed Berries

You’ll need about 4 cups of your favorite berries. These strawberries were so big I cut them into large pieces. Springtime often brings raspberries to the market too!

By the way, this happens to be an outstanding make ahead and freeze recipe and a great way to use those berries up when you have way too many on hand.

I love fruit all by itself. But, let’s face it. A sweet, buttery crumbly topping takes it over the top. Bake it in ramekins or a baking dish…whatever you do just bake it!

Forks? Spoons? What’s the proper utensil for this treat?

Mixed Berry Crumble Topped with Ice Cream

Well, if you add a  layer of ice cream, I’d definitely pass out the spoons.

Or you can enjoy this mixed berry crumble with a fork. Either way, you’ll be greeting spring with a smile.

  19. Could frozen fruit be used?

    • Hi! I have not tried the recipe with frozen fruit. It may be just a little too wet. If you try it, be sure to defrost and drain the fruit first! Thanks for your question!
