Have you ever made a fruit crisp before? It’s one of those recipes that most families seem to have a unique version of, but if yours doesn’t then you’ve come to the right place today! I’ve shared my Classic Slow Cooker Apple Crisp recipe with you already, but this Easy Apple Berry Fruit Crisp is a delicious oven-friendly version that’s equally easy to make and done in a much shorter time. Oh, and it’s PACKED with delicious berries too, so what could be better than that??
If you’re a fruit crisp rookie, I’ll share FIVE of my favourite fruit crisp tips with you to help you have some good old fruit crisp success in your own kitchen:
- Be sure to add a bit of cornstarch to the filling!! It helps create a velvety smooth sauce as the fruit cooks and releases its juices and prevents the topping from getting soggy.
- Use at least some fruit that holds its shape while baking. Berries tend to completely fall apart when baked but apples usually hold their shape pretty well. If you’re wanting a fruit crisp that’s full of berries, add some apples along with them.
- Grease your pan generously! Nobody likes burnt-on fruit, so use a generous amount of butter, margarine, or any other dairy-free butter you’d like and grease that pan!
- Don’t forget the spices! Ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and even ground ginger are good choices and they can take a boring old fruit crisp to something spectacular!
- Bake covered and then uncovered! Bake covered for the first half of baking for an ultra soft and tender topping, then remove the cover for the last half of baking for the perfect amount of browning and crispness!
We love this Easy Apple Berry Fruit Crisp recipe fresh out of the oven with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. I mean, come on!! What could be better than that!?!
