Besides the fact that I love all kinds of berries, I love this recipe because I can make it all year round. Since it uses frozen berries, I don’t need to buy expensive fresh berries in winter when I am craving something berry-ish.
I think this crisp would be equally good as a dessert and as a breakfast dish. Breakfast? Maybe that’s just me but I love recipes like this as a breakfast side dish.
Mixed Berry Crisp
2 (12 oz) bags frozen mixed berries, unthawed
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour, divided
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
7 tbsps cold butter, diced
Preheat oven to 375º.
Combine berries, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour and lemon juice in a large bowl, blend well.
Transfer berry mixture to a glass baking dish.
Combine remaining 3/4 cup flour, oats, brown sugar, spices and salt in a medium bowl. Add the butter and rub together with fingertips until the mixture resembles small clumps. Sprinkle over berry mixture in baking dish.
Bake until berries are bubbling and the topping is golden brown, about 1 hour. Let cool for 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with ice cream or whipped cream.
Makes 8 servings.
