Bumbleberry Crumble. A terrific summertime recipe or even a freezer cleaner at any time of year. Use any combination of berries or chopped summer fruits you like.
Who doesn’t love a good crumble? Even though fresh, juicy, local summer fruits and berries are still a while away, thankfully we still had some frozen berries in the winter freezer.
Combined with a couple of fresh additions from the supermarket they made a phenomenal Bumbleberry Crumble.
This recipe does not add a lot of sugar to the blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and cherries. The recipe lets the natural flavour of the fruits take centre stage beside a nutty oatmeal crumble.
We served this awesome dessert with some of our homemade Blueberry Ripple Ice Cream which took it completely over the top, to make what I would call the perfect summer barbecue dessert.
Like our Summer Fruit Galette Recipe this idea can use practically any combination of berries or chopped summer fruits, like peaches and plums while they are in season too.
It’s one of those fridge cleaner desserts that I put together with odds and ends of summer fruits that always seem to stray behind during the warmer months.
It’s a terrific recipe to make sure they all get put to delicious use.
