Berry Crumble in a Jiffy

I've always had a sweet tooth.  I always get the 2 cookies instead of the chips at Subway.  After a big meal I can always go for dessert.  If I'm going to a pot luck, my dish-of-choice is always a sweet one. 

That is why I don't keep sweets in my house very often... 

And that is why I've become an expert at baking them... 


Today I was craving something sweet, so I dug around in my freezer and found those berries from the Berry Patch that I froze a few weeks ago and made a quick and easy Berry Crisp. 

Here's how it's done:
2 Cups of mixed berries
1 T flour
1 T sugar

1/4 Cup brown sugar
1 Cup oats
1/4 cup butter, diced

Layer the berries in a greased glass bread pan.  Sprinkle flour and sugar over top. 
in a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, oats and butter.  Get in there with your hands and squish it until you have a crumbly mixture without any big butter chunks. 
Spread the crumble over the berries and pop in a 400 degree oven for 20-30 minutes. 

Quick, easy, sweet and delicious.  Plus, think of all that goodness you have with the berries and oats.

I'm gonna go eat some more before I get ready for work. 

You could also call this baked oatmeal and eat it for breakfast.... That's what I plan on doing. 


  1. oh, shame on you!! Now I REALLY regret not going to Berry Patch this morning! :-) I can't wait to try the thyme biscuits too. Jo Ann

    1. I hear they have raspberries right now! I'm bummed I can't make the trip any time soon.
