This Bisquick Blueberry Crumble is everything you are looking for in a cobbler except that it has a different topping to it. Tart, slightly sweet, and so yummy. It's perfect served warm with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream.

Hint: Remember the key when mixing ingredients together is that you don't overmix the batter.
- Berries - you can use frozen berries; however, you may get a different look or texture to the finished dish.
- Lemons - I used bottled lemon juice as the lemons at our store haven't been looking so good, but fresh squeezed lemon juice is the way to go.
- Flour - you can use all-purpose flour in lieu of the baking mix.
- Strawberry - the best thing about this recipe, besides the fact that it's easy, is that you can use strawberries, cherries, or blackberries. It's totally up to you.
- large bowl
- cast iron skillet or a 9 x 9 inch pan
I wouldn't recommend freezing this due to the liquid in the berries. This is one of those dishes that is better not frozen.
You can keep this in the fridge, in an airtight container, for up to 7 days.
You can serve it rewarmed in the microwave or oven.
💭 Top tips
You may need to add a bit more lemon juice if you feel the fruit mixture is a little too dry.
You don't want to overbake it. Bake it until it's just getting lightly browned. If you are using a cast iron skillet, watch the time so you don't get it too browned.
When you serve this up, add some fresh blueberries into a bowl, such as this Jenny Lind Bowl. That way they can top their crumble with more fresh blueberries.

By adding cornstarch. Add one to two tablespoons to the filling before you bake it.
