Tips and variations for making this easy blackberry crisp recipe:
● This blackberry crisp recipe is really simple to make. I mean really simple: fresh berries, some sugar, juice, a little bit of flour, and a topping. It really only takes 15 minutes to prepare and pop in the oven.
● You can use Muesli or Granola for the toppings. Quick oats could be used too, but won’t give as good a crunchy topping texture or taste-interest (well, in my opinion).
● This blackberry crisp can be served warm or cold, à la mode with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, topped with fresh whipped cream, or just as is.
● I have never used wild blackberries to make this dessert. If you are harvesting wild fruits, make certain you know that they really are the fruit you assume they are.
