Berry Crumble

This week's Food Network Chef is Rachael Ray.  I made one other recipe from Rachael Ray once... an Italian Shepherd's Pie.  It was okay.  Nothing to write home about.  Thus, I was a little hesitant to try another one of her recipes.

Then, I stumbled on a recipe called Berry Crumble.  And, since I had lots of berries in my fridge, this seemed to be a great recipe -- as a dessert, or as a special breakfast treat!

We enjoyed it Easter morning, and I will certainly be making it again.    

Berry Crumble - Adapted from Rachael Ray

1 T cornstarch
1 T sugar
1 1/2 C blueberries (if frozen, rinse under hot water to thaw)
1 1/2 C raspberries (if frozen, rinse under hot water to thaw)
1 C oats
1-2 T butter, melted
2 T sugar
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

Mix together cornstarch and sugar.

Toss berries with the cornstarch mixture to coat.

Divide berries into fourths, and place berries in 4 lightly greased ramekins.

Then, mix the oats, butter, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg together.

Divide into fourths and sprinkle on top of each ramekin.

Place the ramekins on a foil-lined baking sheet (I did not need to have foil... but, if they were to bubble over, having the foil would be nice!).

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, until berries are bubbly.

Cool for 10 minutes.

Serve warm with a dollop of freshly whipped cream!

This dessert will be wonderful in the summertime when berries are plentiful -- and making it in my toaster oven allows a yummy dessert without heating up the kitchen!  In the numerous times we've made this dessert/breakfast, we've been using our homemade granola -- can't get any easier than this!

  1. Those berries look amazing! Yum!

  2. Wow those berries look amazing! Yum!

  3. These look wonderful! I guess I am one of those weird people who isn't thrilled by Rachel Ray's recipes. I like her show, I like her personality, but her recipes just aren't me.

  4. Rachel gets a lot of flack. But, if the worst you can say is that her cooking is nothing to write home about, many cooks are making serviceable meals 3 meals a day, 7 days a week... many days i yearn to make serviceable nothing to write home about

  5. Hey SnoWhite! This looks great... Can I interest you in another of RR's recipes? It's similar to the Brown Rice Casserole you recently posted. RR's is called Sausage and Zucchini Rice. You can make it lighter and healthier than the original! Love your blog!

  6. I really have never tried any of Rachel recipes. I love watching her on TV and get a lot of ideas from her. Your Berry Crumble looks and sounds AWESOME!!!

  7. I'm not keen on Rachel Ray much, but this looks really tasty

  8. RR kind of annoys me but I have found the recipes I watch on the show I like better than the ones in the books. She makes a great mexican lasagna and a fake-out baked ziti I enjoy.

  9. Yum! I love berry desserts. I like "crumble desserts. I guess I just like desserts :)

  10. This looks very good! I have a question for you regarding your use of a toaster oven - I have one I have been trying to use. I have tried covering with foil and using a lower temperature yet my food either burns to a crisp on top (while being undercooked in the middle) or it just takes forever to finish cooking! Do you have any tips for cooking in one?

  11. Mmmm...delicious! I love how this recipe is prepared in individual ramekins and great tip on using the toaster oven.

  12. I love crumbles!

    I've made a few RR recipes in the past and a couple were meh but most of them have been pretty decent and fast so I don't have too many complaints =)

  13. Oh, how cute! Those look delish and so easy, too!

  14. This looks easy and delicious! I'm a berry lover to the core. :)

  15. Great idea to make these in individual containers and to do it in the toaster oven. I will have to give this a try.

  16. This looks very tasty. I never thought about having crumble for breakfast! Great idea ;)

  17. Ooo, all those berries look so yummy! Thanks for linking to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
