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!
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!
And, when fruit becomes dessert, life is good. 🙂
How to Make Mixed Berry Crumble
I'm going to walk you through the easy preparation.
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?
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.
