Bubbly Berry Crumble



-For the filling:

1 pound strawberries, stems removed and quartered

6 oz. blueberries

6 oz. raspberries

1 small orange, need zest and juice (about 1/2 teaspoon zest)

3 to 4 tablespoons flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

– For the topping:

1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

pinch of salt (about 1/4 teaspoon)

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and diced in small cubes

vanilla ice cream, optional 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the strawberry pieces, blueberries, raspberries, orange zest and juice, flour, (start with 3 tablespoons) cinnamon, and sugar. Stir until just combined but be gentle. You do not want to break up the berries. Let sit for 5 minutes. The mixture should have some moisture but not be very liquidy. If there seems to be a lot of liquid in the bowl, add the last tablespoon of flour. The juice of the orange combined with the flour should create a coating on the fruit. Pour into 4 ramekins or one large baking dish.

In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, oats, and salt. Pulse a few times to blend the dry mixture. Add in the butter and pulse a few more times until the topping looks like wet sand. It should crumble together when you press it with your fingers. Top all the ramekins with the “crumble”. 

I like to bake these on a baking sheet (especially if you are doing individuals) because they tend to bubble over, and we don’t want to deal with that! Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how you are baking them. They are ready when the topping has turned golden and the fruit is bubbling out. Such a glorious sight! 

Let cool slightly before serving. Top with vanilla ice cream if desired! Enjoy!
