I've been doing a lot of cooking lately in my cast iron skillet (ad). From stir fry meals to luscious desserts, my trusty skillet just keeps on ticking.

However, if you don't have a cast iron skillet for this recipe, don't worry. You can always use a pie plate or 13 X 9 inch pan.

Either way, you'll be making this yummy dessert time and time again!

How to Make It

Choose a berry jam that you love and whisk it in a glass bowl until smooth. I used seedless blackberry jam. Slice larger berries in half and add to the bowl.

I used blackberries, but you can use strawberries, blueberries or raspberries for this dish. If you really want to go crazy...use them all!

To make the crumble, mix softened butter and brown sugar in a mixer until combined.

Gradually add oats, flour and baking soda to the mix. Blend until crumbly.

Press ⅔ of the dough into the bottom of a skillet, or use a 13 X 9 inch pan. Be sure to grease the skillet or pan before using.

Now, it's time to bake the crumbly dough for about 25 minutes until it's nice and brown. Take it out of the oven and cool for 5 minutes before spreading the berry mixture over the dough.

Crumble the rest of the dough over berry mixture. Bake for 25 more minutes until top is bubbly and golden.

The only hard part is waiting until the skillet cools completely before slicing into triangles. I bet you can't keep from sampling the crumbles while you're waiting! I know I can't.

Berry Crumble Variations

If you're not a blackberry fan, I promise that any berry will work well in this dish. Raspberries are especially yummy. If you choose strawberries, or another large berry, cut them lengthwise before adding to the jam.

Different jams will work too. I've tried blueberry, strawberry and raspberry jam depending on the berry I'm using.

As long as you whisk the jam until smooth before spreading onto the dough, it will turn out perfectly.
