Recipe by Mirj2338
READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Prepare the streusel:
  • In an electric mixing bowl on low speed, using the paddle attachment, beat flour, sugars and salt briefly to combine.
  • Add the butter, increase the mixer speed and beat.
  • Watch closely, and as soon as the streusel is light and beginning to come together, stop beating. The dough should consist of pea-size balls. Don't overmix, or you'll have clumps.
  • Refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Prepare the fruit:
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the berries, brown sugar, cornstarch, vanilla extract and salt. Allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  • Spoon the strawberry mixture into a large baking dish or 6 to 10 individual ovenproof dishes.
  • Cover the fruit with large balls of streusel, mounding streusel crumbs around them.
  • Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the dish. Rotate the dish from the top to the bottom oven shelf halfway through the baking time.
  • When the top is crisp and the fruit is soft and bubbling, the dessert is ready.
  • Some hints:.
  • Chilling the mixing bowl and the beaters for an hour or so before you prepare the streusel will make a more tender topping.
  • Use any combination of berries that you like.
  • This dessert is best served warm with vanilla ice cream.
