Blackberry Crumble

By Justin Spring

Serves four. 

3 cups washed fresh blackberries

6 Tbsp. (3/4 stick) butter, softened

2/3 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 cup white flour

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Pinch of salt


Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 30 minutes.

Heat oven (or toaster oven) to 375 degrees. Lightly butter an 8-inch-square baking dish. Place the berries in it.

Put all the other ingredients in a bowl and combine them, using fingers or a fork, until the crumble mix is uniform. Distribute it over the berries. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove and let cool. Serve accompanied with whipped cream, pouring cream, or ice cream.
