Blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are the epitome of summer berries. They are the most flavorful (and nutritious!) during the summer when you can get them from local farmers markets. This three berry filling is baked in a cast iron skillet and topped with an oatmeal crisp. It pairs well with some vanilla ice cream for a great summer dessert.
Juice from 1 lemonabout 4 teaspoons
1 ¼cupold fashioned oats
5tablespoonscold unsalted butter
Sprinkle of ground cinnamon
Vanilla Ice Cream
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Preheat a 10 inch cast iron skillet over medium low heat on the stove.
Mix all the berries, sugar, flour, cinnamon and lemon juice together in a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Don’t worry about smashing up the berries. Taste the batter to ensure it is sweet enough. Sometimes berries can be tart. If they are, add a little more sugar.
Cut the 5 tablespoons of butter into 5 separate pieces.
Except the ground cinnamon, mix all topping ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. It is easiest to combine with a pastry cutter or hands. It is okay to have small lumps of butter throughout the mixture.
Add the berry filling directly into the preheated skillet.
Top the berries in the skillet with the topping evenly. Sprinkle cinnamon over the topping and place in the oven.
Cook for 35-40 minutes, until berries are bubbling and the topping is crunchy.
Allow to cool to almost room temperature (1-2 houror until berry filling is set.
Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.
You can use a 9x9 baking tray if you don't have a cast iron skillet.
Frozen berries will work if it isn't berry season, make sure to thaw them first.
