Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp

Posted on June 5, 2013
Hi, Everybody! I hope you are all having a good week and enjoying some June sunshine! One of my favorite things about this time of year is all the seasonal fruit that fills the grocery stores and farmer’s markets. I love that sweet, delicious smell of fresh peaches and strawberries, and the beautifully vibrant colors of all the fruits. One of my favorites of the season is rhubarb. I love the fresh, tart taste it adds to desserts, and I love the bright pink color that it produces as it’s bubbling away while it bakes! I wanted to make something a little different than the traditional strawberry-rhubarb pie, so I came up with this Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp, which is to die for! Paired with the sweeter raspberries and a dash of vanilla, the rhubarb filling is just tart enough, and complements the sweet, crunchy topping just perfectly! Add some vanilla ice-cream on top of your warm Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp, and you have the most wonderful summer dessert!
*Serves Two*
3/4 rhubarb stalk, chopped
4 oz fresh raspberries
1/2 tbs cornstarch
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbs granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
2 1/2 tbs unsalted butter, softened
2 1/2 tbs brown sugar
Tiny pinch of salt
1. First, prepare your fruit. Wash the raspberries and scrub the rhubarb well. Cut off both of the ends of the rhubarb stalk, then cut it into small chunks. Place all the fruit in a small bowl and gently toss it with the granulated sugar (if you prefer a sweeter filling, add an extra tablespoon of it). Set aside.
2. Next, prepare your topping. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients together. You could definitely use a food processor or a mixer to get all the ingredients combined, but I prefer to do it by hand. You should end up with medium sized crumbles that you will spread over the fruit.
3. Preheat your oven to 350 deg F and finish off your fruit filling by adding in the vanilla extract and the cornstarch. Mix gently, so you don’t mush the raspberries. Place all the fruit evenly into your baking dish (I used a small, 7 inch oval baking dish) then cover with the topping. Place the baking dish onto a larger baking sheet covered with foil or baking paper (just to make sure that any liquid that comes out of the crisp is caught on it and you don’t have to scrub your oven afterwards!) Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling (I covered the baking dish with foil after about 20 minutes of baking time to make sure the topping didn’t burn). Let cool for a couple of minutes, then serve warm with vanilla ice-cream.
(*Note: You will need to double or triple the recipe for the filling as well as the topping if you are making it for a big crowd! This recipe only makes a dessert to share for two!)
Happy Baking, Everyone!

Plum Oatmeal Crisp

Posted on August 5, 2013
Hi, Everyone! I have a delicious summer dessert recipe for you today! As the summer is slowly beginning to wind down, I’m trying to use all that great fresh fruit that this season brings with it and that I miss so much during the long winters. One of my favorite summer desserts are fruit crisps, and this Plum Oatmeal Crisp is one that I make every summer using fresh Italian plums. It’s absolutely delicious! The fruit is tart, the topping is soft and chewy, and eaten warm with some vanilla ice-cream it’s an ideal summer treat!
(Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart)
*Serves 6*
1/2 cup plus 1 tbs all-purpose flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup (4oz) unsalted butter
2 1/2 lbs ripe Italian plums



1. First, prepare your plums. Wash them well, then cut them in half and take out the pits. Lightly grease your baking dish (use an 8 or 9 inch round baking pan) and preheat your oven to 375 deg F. To make your topping, combine the flour (reserve the 1 tbs for later), brown sugar, salt, oats and butter, mix until you have large crumbs that you can spread over the fruit.
2. In a bowl, toss the plums with 1 tbs of flour (you can add extra sugar to the plums if you prefer them sweeter), then pour them into your prepared baking dish. Spread the topping over the top evenly, then place the baking dish onto a large baking sheet (some of the juices may bubble over while the crisp is baking, and this just prevents them from making your oven a complete mess!) Bake for 35 – 45 minutes, until the juices are bubbling and the topping is golden brown. Let cool for a couple of minutes, then serve with vanilla ice-cream.

Blackberry Cobbler

Posted on August 4, 2014
Hello, sweet friends! I have a delicious summery recipe to share with you today! With just a couple of weeks left of the summer, this is a great way to use all those fresh berries, and it’s such an easy, fuss-free recipe! I love comfort desserts like this, especially with fresh fruit in the summertime! I lightened up the original recipe slightly, but it’s still just as good. You could use a variety of berries, but I love the tart blackberries here. Here’s the recipe…
(Recipe adapted from The Pioneer Woman)

*Serves 6*

2 cups fresh blackberries
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 stick (4oz) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk (I use skim milk)
Vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream (or both!) to serve



Begin by greasing your baking dish ( I usually use a 9-inch baking pan) and preheat your oven to 350 deg F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and 3/4 cup of sugar. Pour in the melted butter and milk, and whisk everything together until you have a nice smooth and creamy mixture. Then, pour it into your prepared baking dish. Sprinkle on the blackberries, evenly distributing them over the batter. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar over the whole thing and bake for about an hour, or until the edges are lightly browned and the berries are juicy! Let cool for a couple of minutes, then serve warm with ice-cream and whipped cream! (*Note: I lightened up the original recipe by using skim milk and reducing the amount of sugar, so if you prefer a sweeter cobbler add extra sugar!)
