This is an old-fashioned dessert that everyone loves. It's just as good when made with frozen berry mixtures as with fresh. Don't forget the ice cream or whipped cream. It's practically mandatory.
4 cups mixed berries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cold butter
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease an 8 in. (20 cm) square baking dish. In a bowl, toss the berries with the sugar. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
In a food processor (if you have one) or in a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking powder. Add the butter, cut into chunks. If you’re using a food processor, process with the steel blade, pulsing on and off, until the mixture is the texture of oatmeal. If you're doing this by hand, cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender or two knives until crumbly. Either way, add the yogurt and vanilla, stirring until it forms a soft dough.
By hand – ideally, your child’s – pinch off rough bits of the dough and drop them evenly over the top of the berries in the baking dish. There will be some spaces in between – that’s OK. Place in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the berries are bubbly and the topping is nicely browned.
Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving with whipped cream, yogurt or ice cream.
