Easy Recipe: Toaster Oven Berry Crumble

tumblr_m6s3b8gjM21qh2ttzo1_1280

Life without a real kitchen is frustrating, especially with food allergies.  Since I am allergic to eggs, I can’t go grab any dessert somewhere if I get a craving for something sweet.  I have had to make do with whatever I can bake in my little toaster oven.  Variations of this berry crumble have become my new easy go-to dessert.  I’m assuming it can probably also be made in a regular oven as well, but do not have that luxury at the moment to be able to test the theory. 🙂

Here’s my recipe:
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 individual serving size packet of instant oatmeal (I use cranberry oatmeal)
3/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
1/3 cup cold unsalted butter
1 cup fresh berries (I use whatever is ripe that day, a variety of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries)
3 tablespoons cherry preserves

Mix all the dry ingredients in mixing bowl, and cut in butter.  Layer half of the mixture in the bottom of a baking dish.  Spoon in mixed berries, then cherry preserves.  Spread on remaining sugar/oatmeal mixture.  Bake in toaster oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (time may need to be adjusted for a regular oven).
