This berry crisp is easy, cheap, and delicious. It's perfect as a summer breakfast and even better as a fall dessert, served warm with ice cream. Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we have!
- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch (use only 1 Tablespoon if using fresh berries)
- 2 cups mixed berries (defrost if frozen)
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1⁄2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons cold butter
- Preheat oven to 375.
- For filling, combine sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add berries and toss to coat evenly.
- For topping and bottom layer, combine oats, brown sugar, flour, cinammon, sugar, ginger, and salt in a bowl. Cut in cold butter using two knives -- then mix with fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Pat half of the oat mixture on bottom of a 2-quart glass pan. Top with berry concoction. Finish off by crumbling the remainder of the oats on top of the berries.
- Bake 20-25 minutes until oats are golden brown and berries are bubbling around edges.
Delicious! I cut the topping ingredients in half because I did not use the bottom layer, only put it on top. I replaced the ginger with fresh nutmeg. Great served warm with vanilla ice cream!
I used frozen berries for this and it was delicious. I think I would use more fruit next time, but my husband loved it the way it was. It made a great dessert and a great breakfast the next morning. Very easy to prepare.
I used frozen mixed berries and doubled this for my husband to eat for an easy breakfast in the morning. He loves it! The berries and oatmeal combination is delicious.
