As with most of our berry dessert recipes, this one can be altered to use just about any fruit you would like. We love the raspberry/rhubarb combo, but any berry medley is wonderful...simply adjust the amount of sugar to taste.

Ingredients
Ingredients for Filling:
  • 3 cups rhubarb (approx 5 stems)
  • 3 cups raspberries
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs cornstarch

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
Servings: servings
Instructions
To prepare the filling:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare the rhubarb by dicing into 1/2" pieces and steaming on the stove top for approximately 3 minutes. Just enough to soften slightly.
  3. In large mixing bowl, gently mix together the berries, rhubarb, lemon juice and lemon zest.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, corn starch, cinnamon and salt until well combined.
  5. Sprinkle dry mixture over berry mixture and stir gently.
  6. Place berry mixture into a buttered 8" square baking pan.
  7. Bake berry mixture for approximately 15 minutes, while you prepare the topping. This allows the fruit mixture to cook and set, without over-baking the topping.
To prepare the topping:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar and oatmeal.
  2. Add the melted butter and stir to combine. You should have a crumbly mixture when fully incorporated. Use your fingers if you'd like!
  3. Remove berry mixture from the oven and carefully sprinkle the topping mixture over entire surface of fruit.
  4. Raise oven temperature to 375 degrees and place pan back in oven to finish baking. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbly.
Recipe Notes

Sometimes when our fruit is extra juicy, we lose some of our topping into the berry mixture.  We don't mind, though...just top it with some vanilla ice cream and watch it disappear!
