Blackberry Birthday Crumble

It’s my birthday!! It’s my birthday!!

Dessert for my special day made on the cheap!  Staying within my new food budget is made easy when the main ingredient is free!!  Wild blackberries are growing in abundance at Sauvie Island!

Made with a grain free topping, this crumble will be delightful!!  Today will be a great day!! Happy Birthday to me!

IMG_3406Crumble Topping

1/2 cup sorghum flour

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

dash of cloves

5 Tablespoons cold Earth Balance Spread

Combine the dry ingredients then add the spread.  Using a pastry cutter, or your fingers, mix until well combine and clumps form.  Sprinkle over 3 cups of berries in a greased 8×6 dish (or similar)  I added some turbinado sugar, about 1 teaspoon of arrowroot and a little more cinnamon to the berries, gave them a good mix then spread them evenly in the dish.
