Mixed Berry Crisp

 In Cooking with KAKE, Dessert, Recipes

I love a simple dessert. This Mixed Berry Crisp is simple to make and uses frozen berries as a shortcut. The frozen berries are already cleaned and you do not need to thaw them before baking.

This recipe uses cardamom. Cardamom is a warm spice that is more subtle than cinnamon. If you do not have cardamom, you can substitute cinnamon or leave out the cardamom. But, I encourage you to try the cardamom. It adds a nice warmth and depth of flavor to the mixed berry crisp.

This mixed berry crisp uses frozen berries and cardamom. It is a simple fruit dessert that is delicious.


Berry Mixture

  • 2 Pounds Frozen Mixed Berries
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour (White whole wheat works too.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Table Salt

The Crumble

  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats (Oatmeal)
  • 1/2 Cup Flour (I use all purpose, but white whole wheat works well too.)
  • 1 teaspoon Cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon Table Salt
  • 1/2 Cup  Sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

For the Berry Mixture-

In a large bowl, mix berries (you do not need to thaw them) sugar, almond extract, flour, and salt.

Add the berry mixture to an 8 x 8 baking dish.

For the Crumble-

In a large bowl, combine the butter, oats, flour, cardamom, salt, and sugar. I like to use my hands to mix it well. Once the mixture starts to clump together, scoop it over the berries in the baking dish. The baking dish will be very full. This is okay because the berries will cook down as it bakes.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 70 minutes until the crumble is starting to brown on top.

Remove from oven and serve.


You can use fresh berries, but I find the frozen ones are just as delicious and less expensive.

If you do not prefer cardamom, you can substitute cinnamon, but the cardamom gives a more subtle flavor that I greatly prefer.
