Skillet Berry Crumble
Skillet Berry Crumble combines your favorite berries with a simple oat crumble topping. Just add ice cream!
Come spring and summer, I find myself snatching up all kinds of berries with no specific use for them in mind. I just can’t resist them! Recently, I found myself with a variety of different berries and decided to use them all up at once with a warm, bubbly crumble.
This Skillet Berry Crumble is so, so simple to make. Sweeten up some of your favorite berries, add a simple oat crumble, and pop it in the oven. Quick and easy!
You can use any combination of berries you like, or just stick to one berry if you prefer. The one you see here was made with strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. If you do use a larger berry like strawberries, I recommend halving or quartering them so that they’re bite-size.
For something a little different, I like to add just a bit of vanilla extract to the berry filling. I love the way it complements all of those berries. Almond extract would also be a great flavor addition. And don’t forget about the more traditional choice of lemon juice.
The topping is a simple and straightforward oat crumble. I prefer using brown sugar to white sugar in crumb toppings for the flavor and color. I also add just a bit of cinnamon to amp up the flavor. You can add more cinnamon if you like, but I prefer the subtleness of flavor that pairs so well with the rest of the dessert.
Serve this crumble at room temperature or even chilled. My favorite way to enjoy it is slightly warmed with a scoop of ice cream or sweetened whipped cream. But I’ll warn you that after you’ve sampled its berry deliciousness, don’t be surprised if you find yourself baking it again and again!
