Servings 10


  • 5 cups Blackberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter (two sticks)
  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1 1/2 cup Oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Non-Stick Spray Pam or Coconut Oil


  1. Place five cups of fresh or frozen and thawed blackberries in a mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and stir gently until the sugar is mixed in well.

  2. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray and then dump the berries into the baking dish. Spread the blackberries out to cover the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

  3. In another mixing bowl, combine the softend butter, flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Use a pastry cutter or your hands to mix the crumble together. You'll want the pieces of butter to be pea sized if possible.

  4. Dump the crumble topping on top of the blackberries in the baking dish and cover the berries with the crumble evenly. It's okay if some of the berries are sticking out or if it doesn't go all the way to the edge of the pan.

  5. Bake at 350 degrees for approximatley 30 minutes. The juice from the berries will bubble up arond the edges.

  6. Let cool for a bit and then serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Recipe Notes

If you want to use blueberries, raspberries, or marion berries, the recipe is the same.

If you want to make it with tart pie cherries. omit the cinnamon and add 3 tsp's of almond extract.

For apples, use green tart apples and follow the recipe as is. 

Make sure you serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
