Berry Crumble Dessert

August 17, 2011

Summer is a wonderful Time here in California. The moment you walk into any grocery stores your eye catches the endless stacks of fresh Berries …….. Strawberries, Raspberries, Blue and Black Berries  and one cannot resist putting their hands on them.

Berry Crumble Dessert is the best way to put bring the freshness of these berries to your kitchen. It is a perfect dessert for a Summer Afternoon with Friends. It is made of a medley of berries of your choice topped with a crunchy buttery streusel with Almond flakes.

I like this dessert because I can prep the streusel and berry mixture before hand …. so you don’t have to worry and stress yourself for a yummy desert … All you have to do is to layer the berry mixture in a baking dish and top it off with the streusel …. and pop it into the oven for 30 minutes. Here is the recipe … Enjoy the goodness of the fresh berries !!!!!

Pre heat the oven at 375 F or 190 C

Ingredients:

6 Cups of Berries ( you can use 1 or a combination of berries depends on your choice, I used combination of Strawberries, Black Berries and Blue berries)

1/4 Cup Sugar

1 tea spoon grated lemon zest

2 table spoon Cornflour

Just combine all the above ingredients in a bowl and give it a stir.

Ingredients for Streusel:

1  1/4 Cup Flour

1/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar

1/4 Cup White granulated Sugar

1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon Powder

1/4 Tea spoon Salt

1/2 Cup (one stick) Cold butter (chopped into small cubes)

3/4 cup Almond Flakes

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a bowl and give it a stir. Now add in Cold butter and with your hands rub the butter into the mixture to form crumbs. once you feel all the butter is mixed add in the Almond flakes and give it a stir.

Now in a 9 inch deep pie plate or a baking dish pour in the berry mixture and spread evenly. Now top the berries with the Streusel making sure that the berries are completely covered. Put it into the pre-heated oven and bake it for 25 to 30 minutes or just when the juices of the berries are bubbling from the side of the dish and the top is golden brown.

Remember your aim is to give the Streusel a nice golden color and the berries release its juices. The berries should not loose its shape and become mushy.

Let the Dessert come to a room temperature before serving. You can enjoy this dessert with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream …. or just on its own …!!!
