Mixed Berry Crumble
With the hustle and bustle of back to school this Mixed Berry Crumble is the perfect evening dessert the whole family with love.
September marks the end of many something and the beginning of lots of other different things. It’s the end of endless beach, lake and pool days. The end of late bedtimes and even later wakeup times. The mornings start to get a bit colder and the sun sets a little earlier. But September also signifies the beginning of a lot of new things. Back to school shopping, new routines, new friend and new activities. We are allowed to be a bit sad at the closing of one season but also excited to start the new season. The perfect way to start this season is to slowly leave summer and roll into fall and we will do this with an amazing easy Mixed Berry Crumble.
So many people think that a berry crispy is only a summer dessert, but that would be wrong on so many levels. Of course berries are at their peak in summer months. We also have to think about all the bags of strawberries, rhubarb, blackberries and huckleberries either from our own garden, the farms market or foraging in the wilderness, all these berries need to be used up and this Mixed Berry Crumble.
The best thing about this Mixed Berry Crumble is how incredibly easy it is to put together, so easy you can have the whole family help out. Just add frozen or fresh berries to the pan you want to cook them in and add the crumble topping. This can be whipped up on a weeknight for the whole family can have a filling and yummy dessert after a long day.
Oh no I just checked my cabinet and I only have white sugar, can I still make this?
YES, one of the best parts of this recipe is how versatile and inter -changeable the ingredients can have. Use any combo of sugar that you have cane sugar, brown sugar, light brown sugar, coconut sugar. Essentially the sugar brings out all the juices in the fruit.
