The time has come for berries to shine and blackberries’ mild sweetness happen to be the reason why they’re my favorite, especially when eaten on their own. From May till the end of summer, blackberries are more plump, juicy, tart and sweet. Outside of this season, they’ll unfortunately have a more bitter taste. So while there’s abundant stock at the grocers, this is the time you’ll find some of the best sales to take advantage of stocking up and freeze some for later use.

If freezing is not an option, one of the best things to make with extra fruit, is to bake it into a dessert. Making a crumble is one of the easiest recipes you could make! With only six ingredients in four easy steps, give it one hour and you can have this juicy, delicious, warm crumble to savor. Best served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

The images below show what varying steps look like during the process of making a crumble. For full instructions, see the recipe card toward the bottom of this post.  

If using frozen blackberries, allow them to defrost for a few minutes to make it easier for the sugar-cornstarch mixture to thoroughly mix and stick onto the fruit. Like any fruit dessert, when sugar touches the skin of the fruit, it will begin to release its juice so be sure you’re ready to bake and not let the fruit sit on the countertop for too long. Culinary-grade dried lavender is used in this recipe however, it is completely optional. Without it, the blackberry crumble will taste just as delicious!

The crumble is SO GOOD! It has a lightly sweetened flavor and buttery bite that matches perfectly to contrast the thickened blackberry filling. With lavender added, the floral scent enhances the flavor and pairs beautifully with the fruit. The process of making this dessert is undoubtedly easy and a good way to use those berries that may need to be eaten quite quickly.

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F (205°C). Place a 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate over a rimmed baking sheet; set aside.
  2. FILLING:  Place blackberries into a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk sugar, cornstarch and lavender. Sprinkle over the blackberries. Using a rubber spatula, gently toss the blackberries to evenly coat with the sugar-mixture. Transfer the blackberry-mixture into the pie plate; set aside.
  3. CRUMBLE:  In a small bowl mix flour, butter, sugar and lavender. The crumble may come together into a soft ball.  To loosen, break the crumble into small and medium-size crumbs, about the size of a pea and raspberry, respectively. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the filling.
  4. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the fruit begins to bubble and the crumble topping is golden brown in color. Transfer the crumble onto a wire rack and allow it to cool for 15 minutes. Best served warm with vanilla bean ice cream. ENJOY!
