BERRY CRUMBLE (or Apple Crumble/Crisp)

I got this recipe from the Mennonite Treasury and usually make it with apples, but lately I’ve liked using a combination of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.
I also like to make a larger batch of the crumble mix and freeze some for a quick dessert another day. Sometimes I add slivered or sliced almonds.

3 - 4 cups berries or chopped apples
(Granny Smith & Graffenstein apples are good)
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cups rolled oats

Place fruit in a pie or Pyrex dish dish. Blend the rest of the ingredients with a pastry blender until all the butter is blended in and pastry is all crumbs. Sprinkle over fruit and bake at 350F about 30 min. Serve hot, with ice cream.


  1. yummy!!! i think i might make this tonight!

  2. Nice presentation!!
    I have tried this recipe too and always enjoy it with whatever fruits are in season. My favorite is apple or Saskatoon berries!

  3. Anneliese this picture makes my mouth water. What a good hint to put some crumbs in the freezer. . I'm going to do that for sure. I also love the mixed berries for Berry Crumble.
    I also like to make it in individual Creme Brulee dishes. . for a fancy dinner.

  4. I like the individual creme brulee dishes idea! Now I have two reasons to get some. Does anyone have a good recipe for creme brulee?

  5. this looks delish...i have to bring a dessert tonight......oh what to make, to many choices, i'm so confused..;D

  6. Looks most inviting! We are big fans of bumbleberry recipe looks much like this...and I also do a large batch of crumbs and freeze some for later use.

  7. Just picked 3 cups of fresh saskatoons and found this recipe, so thought why not?
    I doubled the crumble and it turned out amazingly well!
    Love it! Thanks for the recipe

  8. If you like lemon, enhance the fruit with the juice of 1 lemon - it really brings out the flavour

  9. Just picked fresh Saskatoons from the acre of berries we have! Off to make this recipe now,,,,yummy!
