Ingredients Needed

This blackberry crumble is made of a sweet, juicy blackberry filling and a golden, crumbly crust. The perfect combination of flavors and textures! Head down to the recipe card at the end of the post for all the measurements you’ll need.

Filling

  • Blackberries: Feel free to use fresh or frozen blackberries. See tips, below, for using frozen blackberries.
  • Sugar: To perfectly sweeten the filling.
  • Flour: A small amount of flour mixed into the blackberry mixture will thicken it up a bit.
  • Cinnamon: For extra flavor.
  • Salt: A dash of salt to balance out the tart sweetness of the berries.
  • Lemon Juice: For bright, fresh flavor. We recommend using fresh lemon juice.

Crumble

  • Flour: All-purpose flour is the base of the crumbly topping.
  • Sugar: You’ll need 1 cup granulated sugar to make the crumble topping sweet.
  • Cinnamon: Ground cinnamon adds warm flavor.
  • Salt: Brings out the buttery sweetness of the crust.
  • Butter: Unsalted butter will bind all of the ingredients together and also add richness.

How to Make Blackberry Crumble

A scrumptious blackberry crumble is so easy to make that it’s basically foolproof.  Even a beginning baker will be successful making it every time! Here’s how:

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 3-quart baking dish with pan spray.
  2. Make the Filling: In a medium bowl, toss the berries together with the sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and lemon juice. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Make the Crumble: In a separate bowl, prepare the crumble topping by whisking together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  4. Assemble & Bake: Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the blackberry mixture and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is lightly toasted and the filling is bubbling. Let it cool for 5-10 minutes to allow the liquid to cool slightly and thicken a bit before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or creme anglaise if desired.

Quick Tips

Even though this blackberry crumble recipe is super simple and straightforward to make, here are some tips, so it’s perfect every time!

  • Filling Consistency: The juices in this recipe end up being on the thinner side. If you prefer a more syrupy consistency, replace the tablespoon of flour with 2-3 teaspoons of cornstarch or tapioca flour.
  • Tart Berries: If your berries are already very tart, the lemon juice may be omitted.
  • Use Frozen Blackberries! Let the berries sit in a colander or sieve for a couple of hours to thaw and drain the excess liquid before using as directed in the recipe. You may alternatively leave the frozen berries in the refrigerator overnight to thaw, drain off the liquid, and then use in the recipe.
  • Change the Berries: Keep the ratio of fruit the same and try using blueberries or raspberries instead of blackberries.

Storing Leftovers

While this is best served fresh, you may save leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Don’t make the blackberry mixture until you’re ready to bake it, but you can prepare the crumble mixture up to 3 days ahead of time. Once it has been mixed and resembles coarse bread crumbs, place it in an airtight container and keep it at room temperature until you are ready to finish making your blackberry crumble.
