Blackberry Crumble

I love all the summer fruit and it's multitude of uses.  One of my favorite uses is as a dessert.  Fruit is so versatile your can freeze it, grill it, bake it, puree it, you name it....and it always turns out fabulous!

Today I'm bring your a crumble recipe.  A juicy, warm, blackberry crumble topped with a buttery, sweet crumb....baked to perfection and served along side a scoop of decadent ice cream!!!

Crumbles are really simple to make.  Very similar to a cobbler, brown betty, or pandowdy.  You just toss some fruit in your bakeware, make a little topping, and then pop it in the oven.  Easier than pie!!!

So if you are looking for a quick, delicious dessert, try a crumble.  You can use a variety of fruit such as apple, blackberry, peach, rhubarb, gooseberry, and plum.  It's great for these hot summer nights,  to take on a picnic, or to accompany a grilled dinner.  Enjoy!!

Here's how to make it:

Coat an 8 inch square pan with cooking spray, and add your blackberries. Sprinkle with some lemon juice.

Add flour, sugar, an egg to a medium bowl, stir together.

Then add your melted butter and mix well to form the crumble.  Spread over the fruit.  (Sorry I got so involved I forgot to take a pic of this part....oops!) 

Bake for about 30 - 35 minutes.  The top should be nice and golden and the fruit bubbly.

YUM!!!  Serve with some ice cream, or whipped cream!
