A great dessert using fresh ingredients, with less sugar and sweet than many crisps, and the fresh addition of thyme.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 2-4
  • Filling:
  • 1 quart fresh blackberries
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2-3 tbsp cane sugar (use more if berries are more tart)
  • 4-5 sprigs thyme, leaves removed from stems
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • Topping:
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ⅜ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ stick butter, melted
  1. Combine filling ingredients gently so as not to break up the berries, and put into small baking dish.
  2. Combine all topping ingredients, and cover the berries in the baking dish
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes, until the top is browned nicely and the filling is deliciously bubbly. Serve as is, or with a dollop of creme fraiche.
