Summer Berry Crumble

This is based on the apple crumble i made in the past, but since berries are so sweet and delicious (and i forgot to buy apples) i doubled up on the berries and used all strawberries and blueberries.  I also used whole wheat flour instead of regular white flour, and demerara instead of brown sugar... my attempt to make it a bit healthier in a natural way.  And then i decided to get creative and made an individual serving in a small dish.  This might be fun to do with a small dinner party.  Now the question... is this crumble as good as the last? 

Ingredients -
  • 1 cup of demerara or brown sugar
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 6 fuji apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large basket of blueberries
  • 1 2 large baskets of strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, oats, flour and melted butter and mix until crumbly. 
Place half the mixture in a baking dish.
Spread apples and berries over mixture.
Sprinkle with white sugar and cinnamon.
Top with remaining crumb mixture.
Bake 40-45 Minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with vanilla schlag (whipped cream) or vanilla ice cream.  In fact, a little of both is great!
Berry crumble for one... or be nice and share it with someone for a smile.
By the way, this posting is after i served the berry crumble, and this was a hit!  It was completely devoured as was the schlag.  I'm a happy blogger.  :)

Buon appetito!
