Crazy Monday Recipe...on a Wednesday! - Favorite-Berry Crumble

We enjoyed a bowlful of warm Berry Crumble this morning, and instantly, I thought of you. So here's the recipe. It's great with crispy bacon, and a large mug of steaming with coffee fixed just the way you like it. 

Today, we used blackberries, but our family favorites are either blueberries, or peaches (although peaches aren't really berries, did ya know that???! Mmm, good anyway!)

Favorite-Berry Crumble

Berry Topping

1 bag of your favorite berries
Sugar, brown & white (1/3 cup each)
Butter – 1 tbsp
Salt – ½ tsp
Nutmeg – ½ tsp
Cinnamon – 1 tsp
Corn starch – 3 tbsp

Cook the above until berries thicken. Use a non-stick pan if possible—unless you love doing dishes, then throw caution to the wind and go for it! (Not me, non-stick, I’m in love with your easy-cleaning ways!)

Cake Mix

Bisquick – 2 cups
Sugar – 1/3 cup
Brown sugar – 1/3 cup (yes, more of the sweet stuff)
Milk – 2/3 cup
Butter – 2 tbsp softened (makes you feel kinda naughty, doesn’t it—all that butter!)
Cinnamon – 1 tsp
Nutmeg – ½ tsp

Mix dry ingredients then cut in the softened butter. Next, add milk and stir.

Coat an 8x8 pan with non-stick spray. 
Cook cake mixture for 25 min - 350 degrees.
Test with a toothpick, if it comes out clean
she's done!

We spooned the berry mixture on each serving, 
then drizzled with vanilla cream frosting.

Vanilla Cream Frosting

Powdered sugar – 1 cup
Vanilla – 2 or 3 drops, literally
Heavy Cream – start with 2 tbsp and add until you get desired thickness

On a diet? Well…maybe eliminate the butter. Butter has about 11 delicious and non-nutritious grams of fat/tablespoon. Why, oh why, Lord??? Take heart dear friends, butter will be just as delicious--if not more so--and yet fat-free, in Heaven!

Hi Julia,

It was really good. I felt bad serving it as breakfast, it was decadent enough to be a dessert, but the bacon helped it seem more like breakfast, although I'd eat bacon for dessert too, heh, heh!
