Everyone needs a Skillet Berry Crumble recipe in their recipe box! It’s a dessert that gives you the freshness of raspberries and blackberries plus the crust or crumbles of a pie! The perfect warm dessert!
It all starts with the berries — 4 cups total of fresh berries. I used raspberries and blackberries but you can use whatever berries you have on hand.
I love cooking with a cast iron skillet. The flavor of the skillet gives your dish just a little boost. And a cast iron skillet is perfect for putting in the oven plus serving from.
When creating the crumble or the topping, you will use ingredients familiar to a crumble, flour, old-fashioned oats, sugar, light brown sugar, cinnamon and cold unsalted butter.
Digging into this dessert is heavenly! I see putting this dessert in the middle of your table and handing out several spoons for all your guests to take a spoonful. Serve it with an after-dinner glass of wine or an aperitif. It’s wonderfully delicious warmed up too!

In another bowl, whisk together the 1 cup flour, old-fashioned oats, sugar, light brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut the cold unsalted butter into the mixture, creating small pea-size pieces of butter. Mix everything together with your hands.
Spread topping evenly over the berry mixture
Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the berries bubble underneath the topping. The topping should also turn slightly brown. If the topping is not cooking through, add some butter on top of the dry patches to help it along
